I bought this large chunky wooden candlestick at the thrift store a few weeks ago for $2.99!
I immediately fell in love with the shape of it, all of it’s curves and the fact that it was over sized – the perfect size for a pillar candle…and it’s price!
I gave it a light quick scuff sanding with 220 grit sandpaper .
I love this blue color! It’s a calm, relaxed watery blue-grey color with a touch of green, a color that reminds me of the ocean.
I love how my thrift store candlestick turned out! It adds the perfect pop of coastal color to my home!
I have it sitting on my beautiful salt-oak finished bookcase in my home office along with more thrift store finds – a thrift store vintage map of Virginia (where we lived for 3 years) that I put in a black frame and pieces of coral we’ve collected at the beaches we’ve visited in the past.
