1 Minute Candle Stand

Okay, maybe it took me two minutes.  Seriously, this was a quickie.

If you've been following me for any length of time, you know how much I love using salvaged metal.

Although I've been doing a lot of purging, I continue to hold on to certain pieces, like the two iron parts above.

They came from two completely different lamps, but, once I married them, they were perfect for each other.

Honestly, all I did was screw them together, and, seal the rust (which I love).

It's the perfect size for a pillar candle.

You can review some of my other salvaged metal projects by clicking HERE, HERE, HERE, and, HERE.

Well, as I continue to purge, I'm planning to throw a bunch of stuff out for a garage sale tomorrow.

I'm getting the garage as empty as possible for a reason.  It's about to get spruced up for an upcoming event.  I'll keep you posted.

See ya soon.


  1. Your creative brain never ceases to amaze me, girl! How you can look at two different pieces and know instinctively that they would look great together. :) I can only imagine how successful your sales are with these unique decor items. I'm reluctantly having a "vintage sale" in June because I'm "de-shabby-chicing" my house. Bringing in the boho and removing the pink and ruffles. Although I don't look forward to hosting a sale, I know that it's the best way to pass on these treasured items. :)
