Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
As I left you on Friday, the plan was to take…
and create a masterpiece.
Well, it is not a masterpiece but I’m in love with it all the same!
The idea was to make a ‘lighting fixture’ that would hang over the patio table. I found the cool ‘light bulb’ glass fixtures on a sale table at a store. I picked up 5 of them. I had originally thought I would just hang them around the patio. But then the light bulb actually turned on in my head!!!! What if I made a light fixture out of them? Hubby said that would be cool. However, I had to find the base.
I did at a thrift store for $2. To be on the safe side I bought two, in case I messed up!
After laying out an old sheet on the ground, I started to spray paint.
After the first coat.
Now the second coat.
I decided to turn the planter upside down after I let it dry.
I started off with five lights. However, I ended up with only four. I dropped one. I guess it was not meant to be. I actually laughed.
I have to admit I was quite proud of myself! I had to unscrew the leather straps in order to get them on. Then I simply tighten the screw. Easier than I thought!
It looks so lovely with the candles.
We finished the patio this weekend. I will show that to you tomorrow.
Until then, enjoy your Monday!
