Some girls browse the Gap or Bath and Body Works. Me? I browse Home Depot. Let’s face it, there’s a lot more room for my imagination and creativity in the aisle of Home Depot. One day while I was walking around getting my creative groove on, I found these awesome furniture legs. I just knew I had to make a project with them!

Since I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to make, I bought three different sizes and headed for home. While driving and singing along with the radio, I had an epiphany! I’ll make candlesticks! Thankfully, I already had the scrap wood and tools on hand to make it happen. Not that I mind going back to the Depot, but I didn’t feel like turning around. And I LOVE using what I already have on hand!

If I do say so myself, they came out great! The whole project is just three steps, so it’s perfect for beginners and kids. Get the instructions free in my shop to make your own rustic candlesticks.

You’ll see that I made one for each size furniture leg, but depending where you plan to use them, you can also make them all even or have two the same size and one different. Or go really crazy and make more than three!

You can stain or paint them or leave them raw. It’s totally up to you and your creative style. Whatever you decide to do, be sure you take proper safety precautions. DIY projects should be fun and that means no one gets hurt!
