Did you like the white pillars on my mantel?
My sister-in-law made them for me for my birthday. There’s a third one, but I couldn’t get it to look right with the size of my mantel.
She’s made so many sets of them. The set on her mantel were painted red first and then black, so when she distressed them the red showed through. They’re beautiful. These pillars have been so popular with my SIL and her friends, I thought I should make some for the Farm House show back in may. I made a black set and a dark stained set. They didn’t sell, but I didn’t mind since they made great display pieces in my booth. Plus, I could happily incorporate them into my own home.
Black ones for the booth. The bases are made from cedar fence caps, then I had a nice Home Depot worker cut down a fence post, and topped them off with a board cut down to squares. Painted or stained, then glued together.
The wood looks so pretty stained.
They made the perfect display stands for Lucy’s coasters.
I used them at the small town festival Natalie and I did a few weeks ago. These things have come in handy!
Thanks for stopping by!
