I've been obsessed with candles lately and have been looking for the perfect candle wall sconce to place on either side of my large living room window. I wanted something oversized and rustic to fit in with the farmhouse feel I'm trying to obtain. A candle scone seemed like the perfect farmhouse accessory.
Useful, simple, pretty ... the essence of farmhouse living.
After a rather long, unproductive search I decided I'd have to make my own.
With country gumption fueling my need to get it done I searched through my stash of odd sized wood.
First I cut a 1x10 into the shape I wanted.
Next I found some scrap trim and 1xSomethings and cut them all to the size I wanted to make the candle shelf.
Attaching the two pieces together finished the project. After painting and hanging the candle sconces on the wall I thought it was a little boring so I added a chicken wire hurricane painted black for a little extra farmhouse flare. The hurricane was made by simply molding the chicken wire around a large tin can, cutting off the access and twisting the edges together to hold it's shape.
I love the result. Very farmhouse if you ask me.
Hope you have great day,
