Brightly Lit Birdhouse

Blogger: Young Wifey 

Why we love it: This luminary birdhouse makes a great nightstand fixture in a shabby-chic master bedroom or cottage-style guest room. Bonus: It casts an oh-so-romantic atmosphere without the harsh brightness of a towering table lamp.

What you need: Medium or large-sized birdhouse; 3 strings of 100-bulb white lights; and a surge protector.

How to make it: Feed the strands through the openings in the backside of the birdhouse until it’s nearly full. Plug all the strands into the outlets of a surge protector. Place the birdhouse on a nightstand, dresser or mantle.
