Hi Friends! I’ve got a super simple thrifty DIY project for ya’ll today. I was actually looking to test out a new glue. Although I have a personal favorite, it seems to take forever to dry, so I was excited to give DAP® RapidFuse™ All Purpose Adhesive a try. It sets in just 30 seconds and cures in 30 minutes…that’s more my kind of speed.
DAP products have been a trusted leader in the caulks, sealants, and adhesives categories for over 150 years and is based in the USA, so it’s a brand I trust too.
I started with this collection of candlesticks that I paid a total of $6.25 for:
I unscrewed the bottoms of the three smaller candlesticks:
(I saved those for later. See how I used similar ones as feet on THIS tray.)
Then I sanded the tops of two of the taller ones that were very rounded:
I added a little DAP RapidFuse All Purpose Adhesive to the top:
Then attached a smaller candlestick to the top (no foaming and it dries clear…awesome!):
And here’s where the coastal inspiration comes in:
I love how they turned out!
I gave them a coat of Behr’s Gray Morning (mixed with about 30% pure white) that I made into DIY chalk paint. Then I added a few stripes of pure white using a small brush.
I little sanding and a coat of Annie Sloan’s clear wax finishes them off perfectly.
I’m so excited my hydrangeas are starting to bloom…I finally had enough to cut to fill a vase.
They look great next to my new coastal candlesticks that cost me less than $7, don’t you think?
These things are bonded like crazy, and set up almost immediately. That is the biggest selling point for me, and DAP® Rapid Fuse All Purpose Adhesive is two times more durable than super glues and bonds virtually everything to anything. It can be used on plastic, rubber, metal, glass, wood, tile, stone, concrete, fabric, and more!
I will definitely be keeping this awesome adhesive in my DIY arsenal from now on.
You would never know these started out as six smaller candlesticks!

I hope you enjoyed this thrifty little project today!
I’ll be back for Themed Furniture Thursday sharing how I updated this footstool I picked up at my neighborhood yard sale:
Our theme is Red, White, or Blue. 🙂
