Who doesn't love a good farmhouse candlestick?! I have a serious addiction to candles, candle sticks, farmhouse, & DIY so naturally I had to come up with a way to create a subtle decor piece but has a cuteness overload. The bonus it's under $35 & all bought at your local Home Depot!
The supplies you'll need are 6 Terra Cotta Saucers, sand paper (I used 220 grit), E6000 glue, 6" 9" & 14" traditional wood legs, & paint. I use Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black & Raw Silk which you can purchase online or find a local in your area!
Step 1: Use a pair of needle nose pliers & use some muscle to screw the preinstalled hanger bolt off from the table legs.
Step 2: Use your E6000 glue to apply the terra cotta saucers. Be sure to glue the saucers face up so when you place the candles they will sit in the saucer perfectly if that makes sense! I let the saucers sit on over night to ensure the glue was really adhered to the legs. Once that glue adheres those babies are NOT coming off so alignment is key as well!
Step 3: Paint! First I painted the entire candlestick in Coal black. Let that dry then painted Raw Silk in thin layers so the black still pocked through. You can definitely get away with a tester size of each one. I sell the testers for $4.00 each. Once the Raw Silk is dry hop onto Step 4!
Step 4: Distressing! Use the 220 Grit sand paper and distress the areas you want the black to show. When I distress I usually distress the raised areas & corners to give your piece dimension.
Step 5: You're done! Go buy yourself some pillar candle sticks, set them up on a coffee table, dining room table, mantle.. grab a class of wine or coffee & enjoy your DIY you get to brag about!
