Drab to Fab: Birdcage Makeover

Birdcages as decorative elements are a hot item on Pinterest these days, and I like the structural element they bring to a design.  I found this "bird"cage (this was probably not made for holding birds, but some plant or dried floral arrangement instead) at a flea market, and for the grand sum of $1, I brought it home with me.  I liked the size (about 12 inches tall) and the cute brass finial at the top.  However, I wasn't feeling the green color, so after a little elbow grease and leftover white spray paint, it had a new look.  The before" is on the left, and the "after" is on the right: 

And here's how it looks styled with some stuff:

This is another way I might display it.  I can't decide which I like better, what do you think?:

Not bad for $1 and about 10 minutes worth of work.  I would love to hear your ideas for how birdcages can be used in decor, so please do share!
