Bedside Tables

Here’s what I turned my clearance candlestick into with inspiration from Richmond Thrifter. You can check out her blog here and the awesome table she made!

Here’s what I started with:

$12 Candlesticks from Homegoods clearance

$10 Ribba picture frames from ikea

First I took the frame apart and  found the center on the back piece of the frame.

Then I put some glue on the top of the candlestick so it would stay in place as I flipped it over and added 5 screws. Yes that’s probably more then necessary but I figured it’s better to add too many then not enough.

I had recently bought some blue fabric to make curtains. And I searched for fabric or paper that would match that I could use for the table top. I had no luck so I scanned the blue fabric and turned it brown and made the pattern a little larger in photoshop and printed it out. Here’s what I came up with.

Then I put the brown pattern paper in the frame and put it back together with the newly attached candlestick leg.

Here’s the finished tables.

Thanks for the great inspiration Richmond Thrifter!


new project

Here’s the start of my newest project. I found them on the clearance rack!

I’m headed out now in search of more pieces to finish the project. Hopefully I can find them cheap!
