Chunky Candle Holders

A couple of posts ago, I showed you my mantel fluffing.  I said I was looking for some chunky candle holders.  Well, I found some! 

My inspiration was from Pottery Barn.  Here are Pottery Barn's version.  At Pottery Barn the small one is $49, the medium one is $69 and the large one is $79.  For a total of $197.

Here are mine.  I know that they are all the same style, but size wise they are close.  And design wise, they are close too.


I found mine at a resale shop for $18.  Yes, $18 for ALL THREE. 

p.s. I noticed I am close to 700 followers.  When I get to 710, I am having a giveaway....

Welcome Home,
Penny

Penny, those are great! All three for $18.00! You definitely scored there. Thanks for sharing the inspiration picture; I have a candlestick that looks like the one to the right and it could use a little touch up. It is a white wash but with pink and green on the details near the bottom. I haven't used it in recent years and that is probably why!

Wow, Penny. They are gorgeous. And, your mantel looks so pretty.

Your orchid tempts me. I was just looking at one this week. I would love one for my living room, but I don't know how one would do in there. I guess I should give it a try.

Penny, you are the queen of copy cat decorating! You always find great looks for less.

Can't wait for school to be out so I can fluff my house too. :)

I love when I find home decor items in a resale shop that cost a lot of money elsewhere. Great job, Penny! I just found two huge green glass candlesticks at Goodwill that I'm going to put pillar candles on, and then use to flank each end of the console table in my living room. Pics on my blog coming up soon!

Your new finds are just right. And I love the yellow piece you found. Your mantle is wonderful - I plan to change mine soon but haven't slowed down long enough to get it done. You're an inspiration!
