Wood Lamp Shade Tuned Cloche


Wooden Lamp shade turned Cloche

A while back I picked this wood lamp shade up at a thrift store with the idea I would turn it into a cloche.   It sat in my event room for months until I was inspired by Marty over at A Stoll Thru Life she hosted a party just for cloches.   There were a lot of beautiful and fun cloche's linked up.  If you need some inspiration on cloche's  this is the place to get it.

Using a wooden lamp shade and a piece of iron fencing this is what I came  up with.





I think one main reason I let this sit for so long was the tinted glass, everything I placed under it you couldn't see.
I decided I would paint the wood a lighter color, of coarse with chalk paints.  I found this piece of iron fencing at our cabin in the yard a long time ago and held on to it for I don't know what reason other than I liked it.

As you can see by painting it it really lightened up the tinted glass

I used two different colors of oops paint and mushroom Bisque.  I applied the oops paint first and then hit it here and there with the mushroom bisque until I got the look I wanted and then used a wax for lighter woods.

With some E600 I attached the iron piece.

and for now it sits on the newly painted coffee table.

I added a floral wreath and flameless candle.  The flameless candle is decorated with burlap and burlap flowers I made a while back.
 

Here it is lit up

  2. This is great. I never would have thought to do it.
    How in the world do you link up to so many parties? Time consuming, I'm sure.
    You go, girl !!
    Over from Potpourri....:)

  3. That is a terrific use for a light fixture. I have one cloche made form a glass pendant. Visiting from VIF. Olive
