Fruit Bowl To Cloche Lamp

A couple new ideas from an old thrift store find...



I've seen a lot of these lately, a little rusty,
not too sure what to put in it...

Here are a few new thoughts...
I punched out the metal circle at the bottom of the bowl...



And flipped it over...

It makes a great cloche for spring!




 Or a candle holder on the deck for summer...



and finally...




as a hanging light for the office! 


I knew it could be something better
than an old bowl for fruit!
