Candle Holder Reveal

Check out my Party going on Wednesday & Thursday every week.

Oh my! I finished a project! I can't believe it either.  I did do the shower curtain the other day, but this was a little more time consuming, just a little.  I took me two days to do it, so see a little longer.  FYI, the shower curtain took 20 minutes!  lol

I've seen these big  chunky candle holders all over the web, and decided to make them myself!  It was easy too, some 4x4s cut to size at Home Depot and some decorative wood plaques from Joann's, a little primer and paint. 

Literally, $30 including candles, not a big price to pay. 

The candles have a vanilla fragrance to them, which I'm sure I will notice as soon as the paint fumes are completely gone!  Maybe I jumped the gun bringing them in?  Oh well, they are dry.

A little closer up.

Right at home in the office.  I really love my office, can you tell?  I feel like I spoil it, can you spoil a room?

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest project, happy to cross it off my list!!!  xx

Really, I have a list.  I had to make myself a daily chore list, so I could get all the important stuff done.  I left  myself time three days a week to work on projects.  If I get the chore part of my day done fast enough I can work on whatever, but I found that I was lost with out a list.  Plus if gives me time to relax.  I was done with the chore section by 12:30, and that included working out.  I've had all afternoon to work on this project and cuddle with the kids.  We watched the 12 Princesses, Connor wasn't thrilled.  He kept asking when there would be fighting!  lol

You did a great job, I love the candles and your spoiled room!

A list is a great idea. I feel like when I am doing a project the rest of the house gets neglected.... I should start a list to prioritize!

Your candle pillars look great, Tammy. I know what you mean about jumping the gun and wanting to use your project right away though.

Thanks for linking to the party. Be sure to join the humor at "Funny Faux Pas Follies," too.

Those candles look great! It's so much more satisfying to have something you made rather than just store-bought too! (bet yours look better too!)
