Candle Holder Makeover

100_7314

I found this sad pillar candle holder at Goodwill for just $2.

It was from Kohl’s and originally cost $24.99.  I glued a section of it together…it wasn’t completely broken but it was wobbly.  The glue did the trick and it was solid again.

After a good cleaning and sanding, I used some leftover latex paint and distressed it a bit.

A coat of lacquer was the last step and it was done!

I found the perfect candle that smells so good at Hobby Lobby, with my coupon of course!

It has a beachy feel which is my favorite.

I love it and have been on the outlook for another wooden candle holder to make a grouping of them.
