I have hoarded quite a few spindles in various shapes and sizes. Some came from table legs, some from a headboard and some from table lamps.
Please pardon my photos on this project. I’ve been dealing with spring rainstorms all week.
After cleaning and sanding all my spindles, I gave them a couple coats of flat white paint. Some of the spindles had tops that needed a little something-something to set the candles on so I also painted clay flower pot saucers. After roughing up all the edges of the spindles and saucers with sandpaper, I glued the saucers to the spindles using E-6000.
With the pair of table lamp spindles I experimented with a brown wash stain over the white. I think they came out pretty good.
After a little bit of sprucing with burlap bows and silk flowers, I added candles and they were ready for display.
These will be at my craft show in a couple of weeks, but until then at least one set may grace my dining table this Easter. 😉 😉
