Repurposed Candle Sconces from Barn Wood

Mmm…I feel like doing a little junk stash lovin’ today. Do you ever get the itch to create? It sparks exciting times, I tell ya. Especially when it includes junk. aaaahhh yeah. When I found these metal trays all rusty and what not at the thrift store for a quarter, I had to have them. I believe they used to be candle trays, but that didn’t matter to me. I would find them a new purpose. Check out how I turned these cast-offs into some repurposed candle sconces.

To get to my idea to come to fruition, I kept turning them over and those fingers holes looked like the perfect size for candles. How to turn them into one was the next step. I instantly saw this rusty metal being the perfect marriage to some barn wood scraps. And what better to create the union than a pair of rusty metal drawer knobs from my antique farm desk makeover? Nothing, I tell ya. tsk.

Time to get funkified junky with my bad self and whip out my favorite drill and get to work. I’m on a roll…hahaha… This was one of those ideas that when it hit me I had to make it NOW. I love what I do.

All I had to do was add some hangers to the back, insert the candles and viola!

As tempted as I was to keep these repurposed candle sconces, I actually created them for my shop. Good thing they sold lightning fast because I would have kept them. There is always something new being added and the best way to get updates is to become a follower.

    I totally relate. I have a huge ‘junk’ stash. When inspiration strikes, I must strike as well. Love weathered wood and rusty things….they just go together. Okay, daylight is burning, I must get out to my shop and create!
