This old birdcage scored pretty high on the ‘ick’ scale when I bought it.Not sure WHY??? but at some point, its previous owner had decided that it would be a good idea to paint the base of it orange. Not sure why they didn’t paint ALL the base orange? Maybe they realized it was a big mistake? Or maybe they just ran out of orange spray paint?? Very mysterious!
THIS was the ‘ickiest’ part! At first glance (and without my glasses on to really SEE what it was!) it kinda looked like all these ‘blobs of goop’ along the edges of the base were, um, ‘droppings’! (which I didn’t notice until I got home!) I took it out of my car, doused it AND my car with Lysol, then washed AND sanitized my hands. And I let it sit out in the rain for a couple of days to see if any of it would wash off.
After a good scrubbing with a sanitizing cleaner, I could finally tell that this ‘icky stuff’ was not what I had thought it was at all. Rather a very bad welding job to repair what must have been lots of loose bars. But STILL . . . . even after it was painted it LOOKED icky!
The big aqua birdcage is $99.00 at Stars. The pedestal birds are sold separately.
