Old Crate End Table & Candle Accents


After our birthday party and sleep over - I need some "craft therapy".
I put this crate next to our love seat last week when we pulled out the Christmas tree.
I needed a shallow end table for one side.



The large candles, I purchased at Homegoods in the spring, fit perfectly but were plain and white.
For a little holiday color I added some wrapping paper to the middle and taped it around back. I cut down some wood sticks with my miter saw and used little eye hooks in the tops to hang them.
Looking into the family room from the kitchen now looks a little more festive.
The old crate is the perfect size and height.
Natural, Rustic, Old and Pretty
(don't ask me what is on TV ???)
If you want to see another way I have used this same crate - see the following post.

I've been wanting to do something like this with candle. Thanks for the idea. I think I'll use a little twine with a red button.

I always love a crate. I only have one small one. I end up selling them. It's quick money. They sell fast.

I love how this looks! I have one old crate, but it has sharp metal edges and is on top of my cabinet. Really wish I could find some more.

A little craft therapy goes a long way for me! Love your simple candles and adore that crate. Never would have thought of turning it on end!

I just love they way you use natural things in such a practical manner. I jumped over to your 'shoe storage' post. Where did you get your adorable mirror trio? They would be perfect for a small spot in my bedroom!
Thanks!

Holly, love the rustic look. With company around during the holidays it's always nice to have an extra place for guests to put their drinks. I love what you have done to the year around candles too. love ya, mom

I found those little mirrors at TJ Maxx a few years ago. I think Target might have something similar. :) Thank you for stopping by.
