candle sticks made from salvaged spindles
inspired by our new years resolution to do more entertaining, we wanted to make our own candle sticks for a cozy dinner party. to get started we rummaged our studio and found some old architectural spindles. we hand cut them to length with a small japanese pull saw. then, drilled a hole into the top with a forstner bit to fit a small taper candle. that's it – so simple!
thanks so much for playing along, Shauna and Stephen! this project is a perfect example of creating something beautiful from something forgotten. Magical!
Here are my favorite ReStyles from our Flickr group this week….
I positively love this bright and cheery ReStyled shelf.
These ReStyled Shoes are highly impressive, no?
and I really love that Aoife dyed this stained dress to give it an extra life.
