Garden Table Leg Candle Sconces

I have been a JMS member for a long time now but I am just now getting the courage to post something.  I guess you could say I am more of a "display-girl" than a "tool-girl" when it comes to my junk.  Thankfully my handy husband is usually more than willing to help me out a bit.  We got these table legs at a local junk sale a few years ago, probably planning to make a table...imagine that???  But when we finally pulled them out I decided I had a better idea.  PS...Does this ice chest count as junk since I "found" it in my In-laws garage?

P.S. I'd have to say I'm more of a "tool-girl", but I so appreciate all the post by "display-girls" as I'm trying to learn how to be more like them (yes, I have display envy). Thanks. Posted: 10:13 pm on June 13th
Junk_Sophisticate writes: Hi Laurel and welcome to posting!! You've definitely shared a wonderfully unique sconce idea. Just beautiful! I'm right there with you regarding being more of a display girl than a tool girl, however, I hope that changes once we get a better set-up in our work area. Another vote here for saying the chest counts too!

Glad to see you post and can't wait to see more.

The ice box absolutely counts as junk...anything found, deserted, rescued or generally absconded (just kidding...NEVER abscond!) ...COUNTS! Great job and fantastic idea with the table leg, keep the new stuff coming. And gailmarie I have been wondering when you were going to show us some of your stuff..get on it girlfriend!

monakent writes: WOWIE!!!! I adore the ice-chest from your in-laws. It looks very well-kept. I can only guess it will remain so, by you and you husband. Aren't family heirlooms wonderful??? I've got quite a few, that I wouldn't part with for the world.

Your display made out of table legs is ultra-cool and yet chic. What a SUPER idea. Sure hope you gain more confidence and show us more of your work.....MUCH more!!!!! gailmarie

P.S. I know how scary it is to post things.... I still haven't (mainly because we lost our camera back in early Dec.) My husband finally ordered a new camera (yikes - no more excuses for me!). It will be here soon, so maybe, just maybe, I'll get up the guts to "show and tell" !!! :o) Posted: 11:01 am on June 11th
