How To Build A Glass Globe Totem

In July of 2012 I built these two glass totems.

They became pretty popular on Pinterest and Hometalk and have generated a LOT of questions over the last two years. 

I've been promising inquiring minds that I would add a new post with enhanced directions.

A Summer Mantle Straight From The Beach

For years - and I mean YEARS - I've wanted to do a summer mantle that was all about the beach.

Then two summers ago, as I was reading one of my favorite blogs, I saw these beautiful beach pictures.

I loved one of these beachy picture so much that I flashed Karah an email and said "I'm going to steal" "can I use your picture?" and she wrote back and said "sure!"

I was going to use her picture on my mantle.

Now you guys know that sometimes I let ideas brew in my head for a loooooooonnnnng time. 

Sometimes to the point of fermentation.

Fortunately, fermented ideas don't smell as bad as fermented food.

A Sorta New Kitchen Light

I'm a bright kitchen light kind of girl.

I like to see what I am cooking.

So it made me sad that the ceiling light in my kitchen only worked halfway.

That means that only one of the two lightbulb sockets would light up a lightbulb.

That left me with a 60 watt kitchen. And sucked.

It happened (I think) because we had an upstairs plumbing leak that went straight to the fixture.

It needed to be replaced.

Upcycled Vintage Bakeware Caddy

Sometime this spring I found some really cool vintage bake ware at an estate sale.

I brought it home and put it on the counter - because I liked looking at it.

I used it occasionally to hold some stuff, but mostly it was in the way.

I decided that I needed to make them more functional. So they wouldn't just be pretty but productive.

And I've seen all the way amazing two and three tiered stands made by the oh-so-very-talented Angie at Knick of Time.

So I gathered up some supplies and got to work on my vintage bakeware three tiered stand.
