Light fixture that was in my junk package.
I took the light fixture apart and the fancy metal ring screamed clock. I cut out a piece of wood to fit, painted and distressed it then added clockworks from a cheap thrift store clock.
Of course the glass shade screamed bowl because Im loving creating bowls from glass light shades. I just added two other glass pieces to form the base.
I glued glass nuggets onto the rim for added interest.

More fabulous junk from karilelek.
