A few weeks ago, my tag sale partner and I hit a sale that was advertised as a tool and hardware sale. Our hearts went pitter patter, naturally. By the time we rounded up piles of random bits and pieces, the entire crowd was helping us brainstorm projects. I think they found us adorable and slightly crazy, which sounds about right. My kinda tag sale.
Both items I scored – hinge springs and tractor axle nuts – or so I am told – lent themselves rather naturally to candlesticks. All they needed was a good bath and a spray of polyeurethane. The hardest part of this repurpose was finding 1″ diameter candlesticks. Thank god for god – these are actually church candles.
