Making a Centerpiece Mirror Out of a Light Fixture

CAQ AQG glenda Sale 134When I went to Forrest City for my niece’s wedding I had time to antique. I went to a flea market on the main drag of Forrest City and as I was checking out I spotted a light fixture. It was marked $5.00. But, I didn’t want the fixture part, I just wanted the base that hugs the ceiling. I left the rest of the fixture there. I knew just what I wanted to do with it. Make a large centerpiece mirror. I took it to my favorite glass cutter, Mr. Rainey, downtown and he did a great job. He used a silicone glue to stick it in place. I think it turned out really good. Never know what you can make out of someone else’s junk.Forrest City 121
