Lamp Part Vase

Here's a quickie project for you.  If you've been following my blog, you know I have quite a few lamp parts. You also know that I have made candle holders and stands out of them.  Well, how about using them as a vase.



When I say quick, I mean all I did was grab one of many lamp parts I have,









gave it a few coats of gesso, and wiped it back a little.  Next came my dried roses.




If I were using live flowers, I would just add a glass insert.

Rosemary,
Those are the best vases.I love using the unusual items such as pitchers or jars for holding flowers.And this idea fits right in.Looks pretty with your dried flowers and would look pretty with fresh.Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi! I am a huge fan, as I've probably said before...I love your transformations!!! and this one as well!!! anyway, I follow alot of bloggers, yours is up there on my 'favorites' list, but I was wondering, if you have any photos of your home posted on your blog, I didn't see any....because I would love to see how YOU decorate your house, and to see your stuff in a different environment, other than befores and afters, and the processes, etc. OR....do you (which I doubt) sell off everything you re-create and keep it minimal for your home? anyway.... just me and my ramdom thoughts. keep up the good work!!! thanks...

What a great idea, Rosemary! I never would have thought to use a lamp part as a vase. I thought of you the other day when I was at Michael's looking for gesso. I've never bought it before, didn't know how expensive it was! I didn't have a coupon, so I'll wait 'til next time:)
