I should have also taken a close-up of the knobs.  I made them from shimmery blue and silver Fimo clay I had around after making my mom a dollhouse-sized menorah.
Ever try to find a dollhouse-sized menorah for sale?  It can't be done!

Do wish we could have seen them  Sad ... be sure and grab a shot next time you visit your mom!

Or maybe you have a photo of the menorah you could post??

I can take a close-up tonight (and hopefully it will come out  Smiley), and I'll work on my mom for the menorah pic!

They're all over the place, and usually pretty cheap at thrifts, which is why I love the idea of painting them crazy bright colors, especially since the original wood is so dark!

Shocked i really like that color!  i can't wait to see the pics of the knobs!

i used to have a set of those tables.  one day my landlord decided to break in to my apartment and steal almost all of our stuff (don't worry, we got the bastard!) and i haven't found any since.  when i did own them, i would see them everywhere.

  i had planned on painting mine high gloss red with some black somewhere.  it would've matched the ubercool red/black velvet vintage couch we HAD.

Actually, I have seen a dollhouse-sized menorah.  The only real issue is finding ones that actually have the right amount of candles on them.  Some have too few, I guess because they're just too small.  I haven't seen any in stores, I don't think, but I've seen some available online.  Of course, then you'd have to pay like $3.00 for a menorah and probably a load of shipping, but if you were ordering other stuff, it wouldn't be so bad. 

I remeber seeing once a little dollhouse-sized lighted menorah.  Whoever made it had mounted it to a little Bespaq cabinet and put switches inside the cabinet so you could turn on each light individually.  It was way cool.  I think you could buy them, but they were crazy expensive.  I can't find any pictures of it, but I think it was from Dollhouse Magazine about . . . oh lord . . . 10 years ago now.

Your sparkly menorah sounds cool, though.  hehe
