I bought a glass, candelabra style lamp at auction. Sometime between the bidding and it arriving home, one arm broke. That is, the lamp broke an arm, not me. I loved this lamp and felt so bad about it being damaged that I couldn't bring myself to throw it out.
Then, I came across this glue, called Glass, Metal & More, in a sewing notions store. I'm sure you can buy it elsewhere but that is the first time I've seen it. ~
$7.99 is not too huge an investment to give it a try. The label said there were toxic fumes and it is extremely flammable so I put out my corn cob pipe and headed outside to experiment. I took rubber gloves 'cause I'm the kind of person who will glue their hand to a lamp.
Here's the sad, little broken arm. ~
It claims the glue sets up fast but I didn't find that was so. Maybe the day wasn't warm enough. After I added a bit more glue, I taped the arm in place and brought it inside for the night.
By the next day, I had this. ~
The glue held well enough for me to press down on it while adding the shades. ~
It adds the perfect amount of sparkle to my desk at night! ~
Have a day where you conquer the impossible! ~
