How to make candlestick from repurposed bedposts
In between building larger projects, I love to tinker around with small bits and pieces! I had some small parts left over when I made my Pedestal Plant Stands.
I trimmed them up, and used some scrap 1x4’s to cut down into nice little squares. I routed the edges.
I drilled a pilot hole in the base and the candlestick, then screwed the screw into the base. I put the candlestick onto the screw and turned the candlestick until the base was secure.
I stained the bases with a combination of Jacobean and Mahogany to get a good match to the original color of the bed parts.
It’s hard for me to choose a favorite.
These are the ones I put together with bases.
These are random parts without bases, too easy! I suppose you could set a candle right on the top, or use a cute little holder similar to one of these:
