Light globe birdbath....POSSE project

Marlene KindredJune 19, 2010

I posted another POSSE project in the thread, but wanted to put it here too for those of you who don't check that thread. This light globe was in my brother's bedroom as a child, so it's been part of my family for a long time. Hope the birdies will like it too!

(Had to get my DH to straighten the chains for me after I took this pic)

lol -- you sound like me! it doesn't matter WHAT I hang, it's crooked, and my BF has to rehang! I found a great light fixture at a GS today, and a concrete birdbath base at a different GS....pix to follow.....

Its neat to have something repurposed like that when it holds such memories for you. Sure makes a pretty birdbath too!

hugs, Karen

Very pretty, Marlene! How did you attach the chain? Did you have to drill a hole in the shade? Besides being pretty, it is cool that the shade as a family history too!

Very pretty, I love those kind of fixtures. That one is extra pretty and a nice family piece to boot. I love the way the crystals frou-frou it up. I used to see those everywhere for next to nothing, but like everything else they are getting harder to come by and the prices have risen accordingly.

The crystals I used actually are Christmas ornaments I snarfed up after Christmas for 50% off at Target! Only .50 each! Woohoo!

Very pretty, I bet the birds feel very special when they take a bath in that. I know I'd feel special in it, but you'd probably kick me out! Cheryl
