I sanded the birdcage then stained both the cage and eggs. For the birdcage, I used Limed Oak which looks white and for the eggs, I stained them Sanibel which is a custom tint. Both are available from Cabot Stain and Lowes which you can buy in small 8oz cans. I then lined the cage in moss and placed the nest on top. I added in faux birds found at JoAnn’s Fabric and placed them inside and on top of the birdcage.
This looks lovely on a foyer table, in the bedroom or as a decorative item on a coffee table. The whole project cost less than $60.
