I've been holding on to these furniture legs forever. They were cut off an old table I made into a coffee table a couple years ago.
I just loved the chunky shape of them, and I knew they would make an awesome pair of candlesticks. Up-cycled furniture leg candlesticks for the win!

I pulled out chalk paint for this project. I had this General Finishes Chalk Style paint in my stash, it's a beautiful color called Stillwater Blue.
After the paint dried, I lightly distressed the edges and sealed them with Flat Out Flat Top Coat. Easy peasy. Here's a video of the process and a discussion on chalk v. milk paint.
I had these clear glass candle plates in my decorating stash. They are from Ikea, but here are some similar ones I found on Amazon. If not, a piece of wood, or a terra cotta dish would work just as well.
I glued the plates to the top of the legs with this awesome clear glue, E6000. It went on and dried clear, and worked perfectly!
And just like that I have one of a kind candlesticks that add so much character and charm!!
My fireplace makeover is next up on the list... so stay tuned for more projects coming your way!!
