You all know and have seen these old ugly lights at Goodwill...they are a dime a dozen everywhere.
I bought two a veeeery long time ago, thinking I could make cool chandeliers out of them...
This was the one after my (unsuccessful attempt).
It used to be one of those copper colored lights with the glass shades.
I turned the "arms" up, sprayed it ORB, and added little black shades.
Somehow it still did not do it for me, so back in the closet it went, for about another year.
When I saw what this very clever gal from Dreaming in Color did with her old light fitting, I just had to try it, too.
With the help of some blue spray paint, Gorilla Glue, and my grandmother's little desert plates, I transformed it into this....
The little bowl on the top is not glued on, so that it can either be used to hold mints, or teaspoons, or it can be removed to just use the plate underneath.
And here it is with some yummy Baklava snacks...
The fake pearls just add a touch of whimsy.
Hope you like it!
