A taste of spring, a metal thing, and a project.

I picked up these heavy duty industrial metal light fixtures at a thrift shop recently. They're fairly sizable, measuring about 18" across and 15" high. (guessing a little there) The metal is finished in white with just a few dings to add patina. What transformation do YOU think is right for these? I would love your opinions.
Here's a little peek at a project in the works at my house. Just a peek. You like? I will post the finished product when the time comes.

  1. If you could screw the narrow part that goes ont he ceiling into a base of some type, they could be planters or fruit/serving bowls or even for ice to put cans and bottles into to keep cold.

  2. The industrial light fixture would look great in a garden as a bird bath. mount it on a post and seal up the bottom. It's sounds easy lol;-)

    First time at your blog, love it. I think I'll have follow your blog just to see whats next.

  3. I think if you could add just a tad more height to lights they would make sweet industrial tables. Just get a piece of glass cut and you got an awesome pair of tables! Happy Junking. jojo

  5. Hi, SweetMelissa! I agree, the light fixture would look great as a bird bath for your garden!

    By the way, I'm glad I found someone else who enjoys shopping at thrift shops. At these shops, I was able to find several useful items like an iron family tree and iron home accents. They are definitely great addition to my living room.
