I never remember to take before pics! This was a vase that I found at Olde Time Pottery for $10. My hubby drilled the hole in the bottom for me, but I did the rest. Painted wired, stabalized, etc. It started off a really ugly gray color.

Detail of the top: I made it out of copper sheeting that I embossed with the tree rings.

Comments are appreciated!

faux bois! i love it!
you know, urban outfitters carries a lamp JUST like this, but not nearly as great as it's not hand made.
