My goal is to add storage, organizers and a little bit of personal style. I'm only half-way there but I wanted to share my progress.
First up, some cute vertical storage. These are all over the internet, but just in case you needed some tips, I took pics of the process.
Go thrifting and acquire two candle sticks (or really any sort of spacer) and three flat surfaces - like plates, platters etc. I have a burner pan, a round cake pan and a tarnished platter for this one. I bought the "expensive" stuff and it came to six bucks.
Look at all the wonderful tarnish and age!
Make sure the bottoms are flat and that the graduation in size is pleasing.
Try them out, unattached, in the space to make sure the height is right. If not, go find a different size of candle stick - they don't need to match.
Spray paint your candlesticks, or in this case, since I liked the white, I distressed the finish using rough sand paper.
Glue together with E-6000
If there is some sort of trick to this, I'd love to hear it. My tower kept sliding around, I ended drying it upside down.
Fill with your supplies.
There's lots more to share. So stay tuned :-)
