Light - recycled!

Remember the old ugly lamp that I replaced in the kitchen this summer?

Well, I thought there still might be a clever and cute use for it. So I cleaned it, removed the old wires and part of the metal shade, and then sprayed it with brown primer.

Then glued a glass votive where the light bulb used to sit.

And hung it in the garden under the ivy trellis. I twirled a few ivy vines around it.

The rusty brown color matches some of the other other rusty/terracotta colors of accessories in the garden, but it kind of blends in a bit too much. Maybe another color, what do you think?

This is really very pretty. I love how that ivy looks on the lamp. Nice job.
