  1. This is such a clever idea Lora! I’m so happy that you are one of our Charming Homes and Gardens features this week. It was hard to pick just one feature! Thank you for sharing with us!

  5. This is an absolute adorable idea. I have a crock full that I need to do something with. Pinned (to 3 different boards) and need to get on this. Love it so much I chose this for one of the features on the Farmhouse Friday Link Party! Thanks for sharing it. Great tutorial too.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wonderful, Cindy! Thanks:) Glad you enjoyed it; will pop over and say hi!

      Aw, thanks Kristin!

  7. Lora, I’m seriously smitten with all of these gorgeous candlesticks. What a fantastic repurpose. And your mantel looks incredible with the entire display. Have a lovely holiday season. xoxo, Kristi

      Thanks, Kristi!

  8. Lora I love these so much! I adore MMS Milk Paint and I love how you used it to add beauty to your DIY candlesticks! I also know where to go if I am in need of old furniture legs! Pinning!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Kelly! I love MMS milk paint, too. I’ve painted so many pieces with it through the years, but this project was something new, indeed!

  9. Lora,
    You are just amazing! First of all making these into candle holders, then painting each one, even then-you made SO many! I am so impressed with your handy work and love your style. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for your sweet words, Meegan:) Well, I kind of had to prove to the fam that keeping my stash was worthy potential! Honestly, working in bulk is a shop owner habit I will probably have forever; plus I can enjoy all the different colors separately throughout the year! Glad you were inspired!

  10. These are so stinkin’ cute Lora! I love the variety of shapes and colors and the metal shades are the perfect finishing touch! So gorgeous! Well done my friend!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I really had a fun time with these, Michelle! I kinda want to make another dozen…but think I better decorate my house for Christmas first;)

  11. Lora, This is UNBELIEVABLE! The options are absolutely endless!! I am so happy you joined us!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Julie! Fun to see all the ideas from a new group!

  12. These are absolutely GORGEOUS, Lora! I want a whole mantle full of them. Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Mary Beth:) Now I’m excited to fill the mantel in with the rest of my Christmas ideas!

  13. Lora,
    I love this idea. I have a few table legs and spindles in our garage and hope to do this with them eventually. Love the colors you used too!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Angie! I had so much fun with them:) Excited to use them all through the year.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marie! They are starting out my Christmas decor!

  14. These are so clever! You did such a great job using our paint! 🙌🏼

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Jenn! This is the first project; had to readjust my ideas a bit;) But got to use more colors this way!

  15. Oh I love how these turned out Lora! You had a great stash to work with! The colors look great and I love the added hand painted details!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I had a sizable stash to work with, Cindy:) I probably should make a couple dozen more!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Michele! Will try to pop over:)

  16. What a great way to upcycle furniture legs! You created beautiful candle holders that you can enjoy as a group on your mantel for Chrsitmas and then separately for decor in any season.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Paula!

  17. Marlene Stephenson says:

    I have quite a few spindles and this is really so perfect, thanks Lora. I love what you did!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marlene! I should probably do 50 more;)
