Candelabra Solution

Thanks to my brilliant sister, I have the best solution for candelabras!! I bought these candelabras at a thrift store a little while ago.  Read all about it here.

I put them on the piano and didn't really think about them until we had a power outtage and needed some light.  I put some tapers in and my daughter entertained us.  Yep, they are crooked. My sister suggested using ball candles instead. Brilliant!!


I found some white ball candles at Target and tried them out.

The candelabrs are really pretty and with the ball candles they look somehow modern. That's a very interesting and new look. I like that.

Yeah, I've never been a fan of candelabras, (see can't even spell it!) but this makes them more modern and fun! Aren't sisters wonderful?!?

I have a pewter candelabra on my dresser that I bought at a yard sale about ten years ago. I love it, but with the long tapers, it was a bit too formal for the new casual look I'm going for now. These round balls will be perfect! Thanks, now I can still use my candelabra that I love so much.

Jenny said...

Cute idea. That would definitely solve the crooked taper problem! Thanks for sharing your cute find AND your clever solution.

Stopping by from Debbies.
