Cheese Dome Cloche Club

Jason and I have been on a bit of a spray paint binge lately.  We have spray painted so many of our Hub's Place treasures and I've failed to show them all to you, so over the next couple of days, I will reveal some of our before and afters in an effort to catch you up.

First, since I've joined the blogging community, I've seen so many people create their own cloche by using a cheese dome. 

Anyway, I found this cheese dome at the Salvation Army for $1.99 and I knew I was going to copy everyone in blogland when I bought it.

I also snagged a couple of the glass domes for $1 each, but they were missing the bases.

I spray painted the base with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint and now I am officially part of the chesse-dome cloche club.  I know, I should really add a pedestal to it like Allison did over at House of Hepworths  or Thrifty Decor Chick.  I just didn't have a candlestick and I am happy with it just the way it is for now. 

I'm counting myself in the club even without the pedestal. Maybe if I find a candlestick at the Salvation Army or Hub's Place, I'll take this little cloche to the next level.

I put some cheapo lemons from Tarjay in it for now because I'm paranoid about putting real fruit on a spray painted piece of wood.

See that table that the new cloche is sitting on?  It's getting ready for a coat of black paint too.

Oh, and as for the domes, I am using them on plates and plate stands and I really love the look.

Are you in the cheese dome cloche club?

    I am not a cheese club follower but, I have to say I love this piece!

    I have some ideas for the dome, but mine are more under arts and craft ideas....You have a much better idea!

  5. Stephenie,

    I have cloches but no cheese dome cloches. I like the contrast of the yellow lemons against the black base that you painted.


  6. lol! that's so funny! cdcc! I didn't know there was such a club! I might just have to pick one up!

  7. Oh! I love your cake stand! Is it hammered aluminum? I have two in the aluminum and they're so fun.

  8. Great job but I absolutely love the last picture. That stand with the cookies is awesome!

  9. Thanks so much for the shout out! I love how your cloche turned out. The yellow lemons against the black looks great!

  10. I am about to join the club too. Think I'm going to paint my cheese tray tonight. :) Yours looks great!

  11. Yes! I bought one yesterday to paint.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment! I truly appreciate your feedback.
