Industrial Candle Holders

I am still working on my master bedroom makeover.  I spent today painting Handy Hubby’s nightstand.

Between coats of paint, I was able to put together theses industrial inspired candle holders.

These were super quick and easy to make, however they were not as inexpensive as I had hoped they would be.  I saw this idea in Good Housekeeping Magazine and thought it would only be a few dollars per holder but after a trip to Home Depot, it turned out to be more like $14 dollars per holder.

Okay ready for the tutorial?  Step 1.  Buy gas pipe fittings.  Step 2.  Stack your fittings up and screw them together.   Step 3. (optional) paint.  I wanted an aged, rusty look so I spray painted my parts with two coats of flat black.  I then did a very light coat of  textured paint (Rust-oleum Autumn Brown).  That’s it.  Hope you all are having a wonderful week.  I hope you will stay tuned for a few more mini reveals before the big reveal which will be next week if all goes well. :-)  I am linking up with Beneath My Heart.  Please stop by and visit Traci’s Best DIY Projects of May Linky Party.  Please stop by and visit Donna over at Funky Junk Interiors for her Saturday Nite Special Linky Party.
