New Space at Birdcage Antiques

Hi everyone!  We recently moved into a new space at Birdcage Antiques!!  We are really excited about it.  We have been with Birdcage Antiques for about a year and a half.  We started with a small space to see if we could break even or even make a few bucks.  We were not even sure we could sell our stuff....was it good enough....would somebody else want to actually buy it??  A few months ago a large room opened up (which we had been eyeing up for awhile) and our "landlord" asked us if we wanted to upgrade our space.  We were not able to paint the walls or do anything that was permanent with the first space.  We asked if we could paint the new space and he gave us the go-ahead.  After negotiating the terms....we decided that we wanted it!!!  Here's the space before....The walls were a dark red/beige before....



Here's our new space now!  We couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out.  After a few coats of pink paint on the walls and a few coats of gray for the trim, this is what the room was transformed into. If you notice on the trim we made a few quotes with the cricut machine out of contact paper and put them all around the room.  It took many hours to get our new "space" looking just right and to our liking!  Although, it was fun "work" and good company to be with!!
Here are a few more close up pictures of specific sections of our work around this room. Sometimes the most fun part of having a space is to be able to rearrange and organize our furniture to give people ideas of how to put these pieces together.
 The saying in this picture says "whatever you do in your decorating...be brave". Isn't that so true? We like to try bold and bright colors because they are different and so pretty. We figure that if it's not something we like we can always change it, it's just paint. :)





The quote above this door says, "Every exit is an entry somewhere else". Also another one of our favorite quotes.
We hope that you enjoy seeing where the majority of our projects are being displayed. Maybe you can come visit us someday.  We are having so much fun refurbishing furniture and creating projects!
Have a great weekend!!!

  11. I just went to Birdcage Antiques today and saw your AMAZING setup. I am in LOVE with everything you have. I am opening a photo studio in Howell this June and I'm sure I'll be back to buy many of your awesome treasures. Wondering, if I have a special request, do you make them? Customized items?
