candle holder centerpiece…

after making my beautiful dining room table, i had several scraps of 1x6s around… i decided to use them to create a little centerpiece…

i basically built a box with no sides… but before attaching the top, i used a 2.5″ hole saw to drill three holes in the top… here it is after everything was connected and stained:

then i went to michael’s and found these little glass votive candle holders (shaped like little flower pots):

dropped them in and they fit perfectly:

then i used this paint (but in the yesteryear color):

did a very light coat of paint then sanded it to give it that distressed look… i’m loving the brush strokes, fading and stain showing through…
