I have been making real progress in clearing out the garage in the furniture department, but what I also have seemed to amass are about six large Rubbermaid containers of bric-a-brac as well. Most of it is comprised of wood pieces since I am always immediately drawn to them. There are a ton of wooden candlesticks in there, apparently I just cannot say no to them. I used up some of them when I made these coastal-inspired candlesticks, and today, my friends, I am sharing how I used two more of them, along with these wooden bowls that were also on there:
I know you can see where this is going. 😉
I was able to unscrew the large top off that larger candlestick and remove it…
Then just as you thought, I attached them to the underside of the bowls!
Voila…thrifty wooden pedestal bowls, and four less pieces in my bric-a-brac bins!
I used the same glue I used for the coastal candlesticks I made to hold them together:
Love this glue!
A little paint, and you would never know they were thrift store parts…
Great for adding height or just another layer to a vignette.
This one was painted in Pure White…
I painted the other in Behr’s Gray Morning…
I sealed them both with Annie Sloan’s Clear Soft Wax. These are for decorative purposes only, but I can think of a ton of things to put in them! This is a bag of driftwood filler I purchased at Kirklands…
This is a quick and easy afternoon project (once you’ve already hunted down the parts that is), I love those kinds of projects!

I’ll be back next time sharing what I did with this thrift store mirror that was a total score for $6!
See ya then!
