RECYCLED LAMP

Found some pictures of a project I did last summer......oh how lovely it is to see that green garden in the background as we are covered in white snow today.
This project was done using a vintage crystal lamp, old silver plate and an old crystal doorknob.
Drilling a hole in the center of the silver plate allowed me to attach it to the metal rod inside the lamp.  An old glass door knob was the perfect finishing touch and hides the metal rod and washer that attaches the plate.
Love the detail on this old plate!
Happy day!
