The Accessory Closet and Another Cheese Dome Cloche
Isn't this just the prettiest punch bowl? I got it for $8 at Goodwill and it came with 18 cups! It's super heavy. I love how even though it has clean, classic lines it's still a bit on the pretty side with the scalloped top. Now I just need to have a party! On this shelf I also have two different sizes of glass pitchers.
This one is various platters and candle/candle related items. My trifle bowl is in here too because I don't really have room in the kitchen for it. In the back corner is a silver plated water pitcher that I really should move to be with the other pitchers, now that I think about it!
While I was rooting around in there, I found that I had the pieces to make myself another cheese dome cloche. I posted about the first one I made last fall, which was based on a tutorial posted at House of Hepworths. I made a black one and a white one so I would have one for any occasion. Well, lately I've been thinking about maybe painting one green, but now I won't have to!
Then, lightly dampen both surfaces with a little water. Put a thin bead of glue around the top of the candlestick.
Place the candlestick where you marked the center of your base and weigh it down. The closest thing I found that was heavy enough was this houseplant, but hey, it worked! Just be sure the weight is on there evenly and not off to one side slightly like my pot was. My cloche may have ended up with a bit of a "gangsta lean" due to this. :) Let it sit for two hours to be sure it cures.
