Silver Cloche (Finally!!)

I have been admiring cloches all over blogland for months. I mean months! And I have been looking for everything needed to make a cloche for months! Allison over at House of Hepworths made this beautiful cloche back in March. I have been looking at thrift store for a cheese dome ever since. I could not find anything! Finally, a while back, I found this:

Its already put together! I don’t have to glue anything. The funny part, is that my mom, who was sick of hearing me talk about loves me so much, bought me a cheese dome from Crate & Barrel. But I couldn’t spray paint that, I just couldn’t do it. So when I got this, I thought I would have a cool stand. But the glass dome from the Crate & Barrel cheese dome fits this perfectly!!

So after some priming and painting with my new favorite spray paint.

It looks like this:

Matching perfectly with the dollar store apothecary jars I made yesterday.
