Shabby candle holders

About a week or so ago, I found a goldmine of goodies at my 'south thrift store'.
4 unfinished chair legs for $2.00 and some wooden flower bowls for $.75 ea.

I kept one leg the original length and cut the second into two unequal pieces so I would end up with 3 staggered lengths.
You know the drill. . . Whip out the sandpaper. . . shake up the spray paint and BAM!

I found some candles that fit perfectly in the holders at the dollarstore so when all was said and done, these 3 shabby candle holders were under $7.

This is how they were arranged after they found their way to their new home.

You'll have to excuse the poor picture. . I haven't mastered taking pics when the object is up against a mirror. I'm sure you get the general idea though. . .

Love the green candles with the brown wood of your cool candlesticks. Clever.
