So, I was over at A Diamond in the Stuff (who is celebrating 1,000 followers today) and I saw these cute Wooden Pedestals she created. Instantly, I thought, this I could make, and I set out to find similar items at the local thrift stores.
I ended up finding these glass candle sticks and bowls. I had no luck with wood, but these will work just as well. While I was there I also found some hideous bronze candle sticks that had a great shape to them. I didn't take a before picture of them, but come on, you all know what I'm talking about.
First I started out by washing everything I purchased, and then I busted out the Gorilla Glue. If you've never used it, it's amazing! Seriously.
