I absolutely love how this one turned out. At first, I had the lampshade sitting directly on the coal oil lamp base but then experimented & liked the look of the votive candle holder in between.
This bowl is a dumping zone for old watches, jewelry, doorknobs etc.
I didnt have any more candle holders for a base so had to come up with something else. I used a glass plate turned upside down and a votive holder. It turns out I like this better anyway.
Lifes a bowl of cherries.  These were so yummy after the photo shoot.

I love vintage lampshades and had a collection of them before discovering junkmarketstyle. Now I'm putting them to good use and having a blast glueing glassware together.

I made a couple of these out of old lamps that I dismantled but left the threaded rod in so I have a finial sticking up in the middle of the bowl. It works but not for all things..these are great.

I have a vintage shade that I use as a bowl also. Best thing about it, is it's a soft green. Well, that and the fact that it cost 50 cent at a thrift store. Love your creation! Posted: 12:26 am on January 23rd
