Fake These Gorgeous Pottery Barn Candlesticks
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!
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!

Those are some pretty, fancy candles. Did you DIY those too? Is there a tutorial on those somewhere?

Beautiful....thanks for sharing.
what Height of candles
What is the point of the bar soap if you're going to sand the grooves anyway? I didn't understand that.
How is the weight of them? Can they easily be knock over by a swipe of a cat's tail? Those saucers you use break easily. I think they have decorative square wooden blocks at places like Home Depot.
Thanks for the ideas
