Some old pieces from the shed turn into something bright!
The first step is to clean the pieces well. I made up some homemade glass paint with 3/4 part white glue (I used Elmer's wood glue I found it worked better) , a few drops of food color and a few drops of dish soap mix well and I painted the glass globe a blue color. When using this homemade glass paint you have to work quickly it gets thick and stringy. I proceeded to paint the base a bold white. When the white was dry I lightly put some reddish shading over it, once that was dry I applied an antique glaze. I added a little white "snow" shading to the shade , when all was dry I glued the glass shade to the base and attached a little burlap/ red checked bow. I also did a little glue writing and then out lined in white. Now I have a cute little night light ! As long as you have storage such as a shed or basement always keep parts , you never know what you can make next!
