DIY Farmhouse Style Distressed Pillar Candle Holders
Today I’m really excited to share my new thrifty pillar candle holders with you!
I found these guys for $6.99 at our local Value Village. They are actually solid wood, and are hand carved… So my dream-style!

So they started out looking a little purple in color when I first found them… Not one hundred percent perfect for me, but I’m sure they were perfect for somebody else at one point in time!
I knew for sure, that I was going to chalk paint them, but I wasn’t quite sure on how I was going to finish them… Leave them as is? Distress them? Dark wax them? So many options!

After painting them, I decided to go ahead and give them a little bit more character by distressing them! I used medium grit sandpaper to get the desired look, and I then finished them up with a coat of soft wax.
Here is how they turned out! I'm so in love with them! They are all chippy and totally farmhousey! For even more details on the distressing of this project, don't forget to click on the link below!
