Finally a Cloche!

I am a little slow on the cloche wagon!  Actually I have been looking for one for a while, but nada.

Then last week I hit Goodwill, they have been hit or miss lately.  But I got lucky.  I found this cloche!
I knew the pieces didn't really go together, but for .99 I was willing to take it!  I love the etched detail on the cloche!

When I got home I remembered I had a set of wooden candlesticks.  I had hubby paint one white when I went to the flea market last Sunday.  Here it is before I distressed and gelled it!
 
Here is the after.  I sanded a little and used Minwax gel stain in rustic oak.

Then I used my gorilla glue to put it all together!

Added a few treasures and voila!  Love it!

Tomorrow I hit the garage sales with a friend.  Maybe I will find another one!

Have a great weekend!

That is so pretty. I love the mix and match of all the pieces. I cannot seem to find a dome at any at the Goodwills where I live...people either like their cheese domes here or I am too slow! Thanks for entering the DIY Club!
