If you're like me, you've got far too many distractions lying around your house. Dirty socks hanging from your television screen are distracting your from the football game, shelves and shelves of knickknacks are preventing your from reading that book you can't find and old bird cages are taking up sleeping space and keeping you from getting some much needed rest. If this sounds like you, its time to start utilizing these distractions in a more positive way, especially the bird cages. Bird cages can be used for some many things other than birds, check out my suggestions below.
1. Extra storage space. Depending on the size of your bird cage, you can use it for all kinds of storage. You can hang in the closet and fill it with clothes or shoes. You can hang it in your bathroom and stock it with extra toilet paper or mouthwash and soap. You can even hang it in your garage and store unused tools or car parts in it.
2. House other animals in it. If you don't have a bird, but maybe you have a pet lizard or a gerbil, you could easily house them in your old cage. Just make sure that it's big enough for the animal you choose. You obviously shouldn't try to shove your 40 pound dog in one to sleep during the night.
3. Decoration. If you've got a really old, vintage looking cage, use it as decoration. It will look great in your living room, hanging proudly from the ceiling. You can easily paint it to match any décor and it will be an interesting conversation piece.
