Shabby Chic WindchimesMay 19th, 2009 in member junk
A few years ago, I purchased a hanging lamp with an ornate cutout metal rim around it and a tacky 60ish huge glass globe which covered the bulb inside. It didn't work, and I only wanted it for the metal framework. I removed the glass globe and all the electrical components, and waited for the right thing to do to it. Last year, I bought a piece of furniture at auction and, inside, surprise, was a box of interestingly carved serving and eating utensils! They were cheap metal, but cool looking. I drilled a hole in the end of each of them, attached galvanized wire through the holes so it wouldn't rust and strung them to the metal lamp framework. It hangs in my garden now, and they jingle jangle interestingly when the wind blows or when my dogs walk under them just grazing them with their backs. The combo looks just right!
