Part 2 of the Cheese Dome

Remember the cheese dome and how I used the bottom part to create this over sized button?


Well lets take a look at what I did with the top of that cheese dome. Couldn't have that top part going to waste! Here's what I started with.

To the glass cover I added this chunky wooden candle stick. First I made the candle hole larger. Large enough for the handle of the dome to fit into. I painted the candle stick and antiqued it. Lastly I glued (E6000) the cheese dome upside down to the candle stick.

And Walla! A lovely pedestal bowl!

Totally love how this one came out! And love my little thrift store balls in there! All parts for this piece were picked up at the thrift store! Yeah way to up-cycle! Go me! lol!

Just a shot of the inside, glued part.

And from another angle just in case you need details!

Ahhhh! So pretty! Do you want one?

Very cute! I have several wooden candle holders that I've been thinking about gluing together to make one big one, more of a statement. Love the cheese dome added, hmmm, got me thinking :)
