a timely garden fence chandy…

recently, I shared my new dining room chandelier, that replaced this smaller chandelier.

  037

I had some fencing left over from this project and this project.   my husband wrapped the fencing around an old clock face, and wired the chandelier to the center of it.

 004

the fence is simply held on by bending the prongs to the back of the clock.

this really added some personality to the room.  a very quick and easy project, and since, I had the parts lying around—free!  hope you like it!

  23. Hi Lynn, thanks for stopping by Quirky Vistas and leaving me your sweet notes. I think the tarnished silver has huge appeal if surrounded by the right stuff. You have a wonderful knack for turning shabby into sweet and glamorous. Some of the silver I polished last month is starting to tarnish again and I am going to leave it a while and pay homage to it's downstyled glory for a while. I'll see if I can make it work for me.

  25. I would have never thought of that..using a clock face for a medallion! You are too clever! I, too, am a lover of fencing and was fortunate to find a rusty one years ago. It's just sort of sat around waiting for me to find just the right project. I think you've inspired me! I would love for you to pop on over to visit my blog when you get a chance... we have similar musings!
