Hope you are having a great week!
Today I'd like to share with you one of my latest projects, a set of candle sticks made from wooden spindles.
For this project, I enlisted the aide of my handy hubby, who put the candlesticks together for me (as well as cut the wooden tops!). Anyway, I'll show you what they started out life as, but first let's take a look at the final product!
When I first spotted a bunch of these new unfinished wooden spindles at the thrift shop earlier this summer, I quickly snatched them up! I just knew that they would be the making of a fun project! Candle sticks were the first thing that came to mind, as they are one of my very favorite things to transform.
I just so happened to find three unfinished wooden bases at another craft shop and thought they would be perfect as the bottoms of the candle sticks.
I really love the shape of these spindles! The shorter two are identical, and the taller one is of a different shape. I think that just makes things a bit more interesting! I didn't have anything to use for the tops of the candle sticks, so hubby bought a new piece of wood for me, cut them to size, and assembled everything with screws and wood glue. (so glad to have a handy guy around!!)
I then painted them all a nice crisp white, and distressed them to further enhance their curves!
I love the look! I have several more of the shorter spindles, just waiting to be transformed! This set is now in my Etsy shop, if you are interested.
Have a great day! Now go out and find something to paint!!
