A huge, wood, lamp I found at the Goodwill for $3.49. A metal tray, Goodwill 99 cents. A wood craft plaque from Michael's, 89 cents. (I already started to prime when I remembered to take a photo.)
First I sprayed all three pieces with primer. Then I sprayed each piece with dark brown spray paint. Next I spritzed the pieces with black spray paint. Lastly I used black antiquing polish with a foam brush. (from Michael's)
I put felt pads on the bottom piece to protect my floors and attached the three pieces with construction adhesive.
Here's the finished lamp-plant stand.
This project was really fun, easy, inexpensive and I loved the way it turned out!
I just started blogging last fall and visiting other peoples blogs. I loved it when people would show the cloche in their home and admired the ways they would display things under them. So I started keeping my eye out for some cloche of my own. It's been fun playing around with different things to display under them. I am really excited for this blog party where I'll get to see how lots of people display cloche in their homes.
A display on my dining room table.
This metal cloche came from Homegoods. It was primer gray. So I spray painted it cream and then "antiqued" it with some brown craft paint.
A metal cloche from Michael's with a nest candle holder inside.
My favorite display.
I love mushrooms.
This cloche actually started out as a hanging candle holder, if you want to see how I turned it into a cloche click here.
This baby cloche is from Michael's. It's on clearance right now so if you like it run on over there.
It's cute, but I decided to give it a make over.
Here's how it looks now.
This glass top and silver plate I got at the Goodwill. They were not together. They came to a grand total of $3.98, score!
