Chicken Wire Cloche

Back in November I decided I wanted a cloche. Not only did I want a cloche, but I wanted one that had character, wasn’t too expensive, and could be made. While doing another project with chicken wire, the wheels in my brain started turning and I cut a piece out and in about 5-10 minutes (tops), came up with this:

At the time I didn’t really know what I was going to do with it, I had just seen the things people were doing with it and wanted one of my own. It sat around for quite awhile in my garage until last month when I went to a church rummage sale and found this:

Well, I have to confess, it didn’t look like this yet, it was actually really smooth and a shiny wood stain. I thought I’d taken a before picture, but I must have forgotten with all the projects I’ve had going on. I picked it up (for 10 cents, nice deal huh?!) thinking it looked the perfect size and for a dime I was at no real loss, brought it home and tried it out. It fit perfectly. YAY!
                                    So I gave them both my rusting remedy (details in a future post)

Added a knob spray painted wooden knob (that looks lame in the pix, what gives?!)

And set it on my new fireplace mantel 

                                           which I will be sharing soon, so Stick around!
