DIY Wood Candle tapers and Plate Chargers

Here are Magnolias Wooden Candle tapers. They are a little pricey for me. Small are $24 each, medium $28 and Large are $32.
All 7 of mine were under $28!!
3 Small $8.50
2 Medium $9.25
2 Large $9.75
Total $27.50
I bought these chargers at Michaels arts and crafts store. I got them 50% off. so I think they were $4 each.
I used Minwax Weathered Oak and a bit of Provincial and used a wet wipe to apply the stain. Then used a clean wet wipe to remove the excess and make them lighter. Then I use a white wax and brush to add some texture and soften the wood. I used this same technique to do my candle tapers.

 This picture is a little darker than they really are it was raining out side and dark.

kitchen Island Planking and Paint Makeover

At the beginning of December I finally got the go ahead from my hubby to re-do my kitchen island! Squeal!! I've been wanting to do something to it forever!! It was pretty boring so I added some beautiful thick planking. Now I did this in three days and it was a lot of work by myself. But I love how it turned out.
Here is the before .
 I did have the nice people at LOWES cut my wood slats to 6 inch pieces. then I sanded the edges and nailed them up. I did have to rip one board down the center because it was too thick. I used my brad nailer to tack them up ad used a nickel to space the boards. This defiantly would have been a lot easier with some help. But the only helper I had was my 4 year old daughter and she was busy watching The Cat and the Hat!

 When my daughter saw the wood she was so excited that I was making our cabinets pink! she begged me to leave them this pink color. hahahahah! No way sweetie!
 This is the island after a good painting. I used Benjamin Moore Advanced in White Dove. It is my favorite off white. It runs about $55 a gallon but is such great paint! I didn't have to prime the wood because it adheres to the semi slick surface and it dries 6 times harder than regular paint. I did however prime the planking. I did go over the island 3 times to make sure it was covered well. Here is a sneak peek at my whole kitchen painted white. I am in LOVE! it just fits me so much more than the wood.
It makes the space so much brighter.
I hope you had a great Christmas! and have a Happy New year!
