Happy White Wednesday!

I just finished these chunky, chippy candleholders.

Aren't they pretty?

Well, they didn't start out very pretty....

They actually started out as two pieces of an old post. 

I thought three was better than two so...
My man got out the miter saw and cut one of the pieces into two - one medium, one small.


At first, I kinda did like them just as I found them with their original white, chippy paint but
you know how I LOVE to put appliques on stuff.

I knew I had some rose drops with bows
but when I went digging through my appliques
I was so excited to find
that I had them in three different sizes! 


I, (that's cute...), I mean, My Man, added some nails to the top
to hold some candles.

I also had to add a little more paint to the top
after I painted the appliques.

And of course a little sanding.

So, now we have a pretty shabby set of three
chunky, chippy candleholders
with beautiful rose drop appliques.

Happy White Wednesday everyone!
