Had new light fixtures installed and would like to know if someone have any recycled purpose for the old ones.

    I'd use the filigree ring to string up old silverware and translucent beads for a wind chime.

    I just replaced one like it and donated it, since it was in excellent shape.

    You could paint the filigree ring and attach a small mirror on the inside circle. Looks like there's a nice place to mount it with some clear silicone.

    Do you have a Habitat Restore you can take them to?

    Use it as a stand on your Christmas/Thanksgiving table for your turkey

    Take them to a Habitat Restore so someone else can use them again. It's good to help other people in need.


    Anytime you have something that you don't know what to do with, that means you don't need it. But as long as it isn't destroyed, someone else can use it for it's original purpose.

    Set the glass bowl on top of filegre ring and you have a lovely fruit bowl.

    A wall mirror or clock with the filigree ring. Glue a tuna can to the glass globe and use it as a decorative bowl. You can even paint it. Remove the electrical components from the round disc. Use it as a trivet next to the stove for hot pans or cooling base from baking. You can also donate it since it is still in working condition and all the parts are there.
