Recent Project: Candlesticks

Over the summer, I picked up these discounted candlestick holders:

Needless to say, they’re just basic wood candlesticks. Well, I’m not much of a light wood fan (and I thought back to this post when I stained our barstools), so I decided to stain them much darker. The effect is nice! I like the richness of the darker stain, and it fits much better into our home. Plus it was an easy, cost-effective upgrade!

Much nicer, right? I applied a couple coats of the stain and one coat of sealant, then topped with brisk white candles. The only thing left to do is to find the perfect place for them!
