Cloche-ish & the Pink Room!

Hello, hello!
I'm just going to jump right in here today! I've seen many a cheese dome turned into a cloche and I just love the look. I came across a couple of cheese domes myself and decided to give it a shot.

I picked up this one for $2 and the candlestick for $1 at HFH. I pried the candleholder metal thing out of the candlestick and used Titebond wood glue to put them together

I wanted to still be able to use the cloche for food. So I lightly sanded the top and taped it up before painting.

I didn't get pictures of each step. I used satin black spray paint and gave it 2 good coats. No leaks under the tape - good!

I used olive oil to condition the wood and give it a rich sheen.

And there you have it! I'm betting how long it takes my 8 yr old to knock it over and break the glass...I'll just enjoy it while I can!

Here's another little something I knocked out yesterday. This was a plain white shade and I wrapped some ribbon around it and used tape to hold it in place. I think it looks really cute now and it took about 5 min. I love little changes with a pop!

This is in what I call the Pink's essentially a guest room but I've turned it into my giant closet/changing room. It's all of my girlie-girl stuff.

I LOVE this room..I'm in the process of changing it up and am using this sheet music and butterfly print as inspiration for a new look. I have plans to beadboard the ceiling..Brian is not looking forward to this one. Bless his heart.

Have a good day & come by again soon!
