Giant Candlestick

While having wood cut at Home Depot for a different project,
I spied a piece of turned post on the floor by the saw...

 I asked about it and the man 
cutting my wood said it was scrap....
and he gave it to me for free!

I brought it home and got to work...

I attached a square piece of wood to the bottom for support...

And a wooden bowl from the thrift store to the top....

Inside the bowl I put a silver dish that fit perfectly...

I painted the whole thing white and distressed the edges...

added a battery operated candle...

And I created an awesome 4 foot tall candle stick
from a free scrap...

  1. Fabulous, Susan! I can't believe they would have just thrown that out. I guess it pays to check out the lumber section ~ it will give me something to do when my hubby says, "I just need to stop at Home Depot quick" and I know it's not going to be quick. : )

  2. yes indeed - you had the vision - again. Great job!

  3. FREE is the best! He must have known you were the person to make it fabulous!

  4. That post was waiting at the Home Depot just for you, Susan! I Love the transformation. Have a wonderful Sunday!!

  5. Cute, cute, cute......and free is one of my fav words! How very nice that turned out.

  6. That looks so gorgeous! I can't believe they were just going to throw it away! You got to Home Depot at the right time!
