Hope yours is great, and filled with creative moments.
OK, so , a few months ago I did not even know a word like "cloche" , and now I'm making them out of light fittings? WHAT NEXT, PEOPLE???!!!
All I can say is..... ya'll inspire me.
I found this old brass light at Goodwill, of course (we don't have any other cool thrift stores close by), and turned it into this.....
And now I have to say I'm sorry once again, because I forgot to take pictures of the "during".
Hey! At least I got the "before" and "after"!
Truth be told, there are not that many steps anyway.
I pulled all the electrical stuff out...basically the whole "light" part. Took the chain off, and was left with just the glass shade. I used the brass ceiling medallion and other fittings and stacked them to sort of make a "handle" on top.
Then I just taped the glass with painter's tape, sprayed with ORB (Oil Rubbed Bronze) and that's it!
A Cloche!....Sort of....
Now that I see the pictures, I realize that extra piece of bolt inside is more visible than I thought. Wonderhusband says he will help me get rid of it.
Filling the cloche was more of a challenge than making it... I finally just collected all the decorating balls I had and stuffed them in there. That will have to do for now until inspiration strikes again. (Read: until I can copy one of your pretty ideas.)
