Back in November I decided I wanted a cloche. Not only did I want a cloche, but I wanted one that had character, wasn't too expensive, and could be made. While doing another project with chicken wire, the wheels in my brain started turning and I cut a piece out and in about 5-10 minutes (tops), came up with this:
Well, I have to confess, it didn't look like this yet, it was actually really smooth and a shiny wood stain. I thought I'd taken a before picture, but I must have forgotten with all the projects I've had going on. I picked it up (for 10 cents, nice deal huh?!) thinking it looked the perfect size and for a dime I was at no real loss, brought it home and tried it out. It fit perfectly. YAY!
So I gave them both my rusting remedy (details in a future post)
Added a knob spray painted wooden knob (that looks lame in the pix, what gives?!)
And set it on my new fireplace mantel
which I will be sharing soon, so Stick around!
