How to Make an Outdoor Pedestal Candle

Here is one more project from the old lamp table I found. 

For this one I used the center spindle.

I added a top, bottom and metal dish.

I spray painted it white.

And added a citronella candle.

And Voila! 

It's joining my giant candlestick
on the deck for the summer!

In case you missed it, stop over and see the 

garden sign
raised table tray

made from this same old lamp.

  1. oh...sooooo loving these!! super idea and super job! ;)

  2. Very cute. Love the re purpose =)

  3. Nice job. You got a lot of mileage out of that old table.

  4. Wow! Another awesome creation! I'm going to be looking at
    my finds in a whole new way from now on. You are an inspiration
    Susan. Thank You!

  5. I love it, Susan! I think it's great that you used every part of that table to repurpose into something else. One more thing saved from the landfill! I'm sure that is going to look great at night with both candles lit.

  6. Super cute, I think I need a couple of those as well! Visiting from the blog hop, now following as well.

  7. Great idea, Susan, & they both look so pretty! Since an outdoor candle would melt into a messy puddle in AZ right now, I will have to save this idea for Fall/!

  8. Hi, I'm following you via At the Picket Fence Bloghop! The outdoor candle is great! I love that idea!!!
