Broken cherub wall sconce planter : upcycled into a shelf

P1180913

Found this cute little cherub wall sconce planter a while back.  It was originally black, so I repainted her white.

P1180912And while I was painting her, and as happens quite often with these plaster pieces that have metal loops on the back for hanging, the hanger broke!  NOW what??? Pretty useless unless I can HANG it on the wall!!  But I really don’t want to toss it out!

P1180914My remedy?  Add a 1/2 round piece of wood, glued to the top (covering what was the planter ‘bowl’)  and turn it into a little shelf!  I’ll be able to hammer a couple of saw-tooth hangers into the wood to hang it from.
