Why we adore it: This illuminating presence perch room makes an extraordinary end table installation in a shabby-chic main room or bungalow style visitor room. Reward: It throws a very sentimental air without the merciless shine of a towering table light.
What you require: Medium or huge measured bird enclosure; 3 strings of 100-knob white lights; and a surge defender.
Instructions to make it: Feed the strands through the openings in the rear of the bird enclosure until its about full. Connect all the strands to the outlets of a surge defender. Place the aviary on an end table, dresser or mantle.
