Love Pottery Barn holiday decor but don't love the price? Grab some table legs & terra cotta saucers for this genius trick! Check out the video for more how-to's!
Fake These Gorgeous Pottery Barn Candlesticks
First stop - home depot - I purchased 3 different wooden legs at different heights. Then I purchased 6 terra cotta pot saucers for the top and bottom of each. For the longer table legs I purchased two larger saucers for the bottom for extra stability.
Step 1: Remove screws.
To begin, twist off the screws using a pair of pliers. This will leave your legs with a flat surface.
Step 2: Attach & let dry.
Next, attach the saucers using E6000 glue and let them dry overnight.
Step 3: distress.
After your candle sticks are dry, grab a bar of soap and begin rubbing it into the grooves of each leg.
Step 4: paint & let dry.
Next, grab some chalk paint, paint them & let them dry.
Step 5: Sand.
After that, sand the soap off of each leg.
These candle sticks are such a stunning accent to any room, and no one will believe you made them yourself!
Just add a bow and some greenery to dress them up for Christmas!
These are also great after the holidays too - mix and match your candles & decor -- the possibilities are endless!
I hope this inspires you to fake your own high end look today!
Happy Holidays, I'll see you in my next video!
