Diy Wooden Candle Holders Pottery Barn Style (just nicer!)Posted by Franziska on Jan 12, 2013 in Blog, Upcycling & DIY | 0 comments
I wish I still had a photo from those two church pews that I picked at the curb a couple of months ago. All I have is a picture I took after I turned them into two wall tables; I had them in my booth at the antique market in McKinney last month. They didn’t really grab anyone’s attention -if I don’t sell an item one month then I’d usually bring it back the next month, but nobody even looked at them, so I took it back home and took it apart to make several items out of it. The beautiful wooden legs could be candle holders, I thought.
And then it went onto the router machine to get the same size like my precut template (my hubby taught me yesterday how to use it, now I am looking for more projects I could use this thing for…maybe wooden letters?!).
I used a rounding bit to round the corners, it looks like this (I used the image from Home Depot):
I found similar candle holders at Pottery Barn for $29.50 for the small one and $69 for the biggest one. I think mine are just as nice (if not nicer…) AND mine aren’t new, they are from recycled material and will be a killer deal since I am selling them as a set
