Fancy Frugal Life: DIY Pedestal Picture Frame

Sunday, April 3, 2011

DIY Pedestal Picture Frame

This is another fun project to do with your thrifty candlesticks. My inspiration is from Mrs DIY and the Tennis Guy.

I found what I needed for $4,00 at the Goodwill and sprayed them white. Important to note that I chose one shorter and taller candlestick.

After they dried I glued the frame to the candlestick with E6000.

They look so sweet in my daughter's room. You can take the tour here if you'd like.

I do think these would look great in every color and since they are so inexpensive I need more!

By the way, I saw these awhile ago in a local antique mall for $12.00 each. Now we know how they were most likely made!

Hope you like!
