MY JUNKY MARRIAGE

Take one of these...



and one of these...



add one of these...



and of course one of these...



and you get one of these...



a junk marriage if you will... sorry this one is mine but you can totally copy this for yourself... you'll need an old floor lamp base, a crusty ceiling fixture, a tart tin and of course a candle.

Enjoy...

Fantastic for a centerpiece, I used to have tons of those old lamp bases but being as heavy as they are they were the first thing to go when I moved.
SAD:(

I love how this turned out. I have a similar bottom base with a large candle sitting on top, but like the additions.

Hope you are doing well and enjoying the summer.

Hi Shelley!
this is so cute!
I love this idea. Upcycling instead of recycling...You could never find or buy anything with this cool of a patina!
Have a wonderful evening!
Blessings my friend,
Donna
