I love chunky, wooden turned candlesticks, but they can be costly. Did you know you can easily DIY them from materials you can find in most hardware stores?
I was in Lowe’s earlier this week when I happened upon these lovely turned table legs.
I purchased the terra cotta saucers from Rural King.
I then used wood glue to glue saucers to one end of the legs, but for the end with the screw? I chose to drill a hole in the saucers.
I learned that you can soak your terra cotta pots overnight in water and drill a hole with a standard drill bit. No masonry bit needed!
I then bolted the saucers on and painted them white with two coats of chalk paint.
I’m happy with how they turned out, but I’m thinking of cutting one of the taller candlesticks down so I’ll have three varying sizes. I love the look of these and I know they’ll look great on our mantle.
This was a DIY project that didn’t cost much, and it was easy and fun to do. I love how cute these candlesticks are as well!
Have a wonderful week.
