My husbands tree stand when he was a young boy is now a candle holder for all to enjoy. The photo in front shows the stand being used in 1956.

I love this idea, and the age/history of the tree stand just adds so much to the look. I'm sure it brings back happy memories for your hubby!

Thanks for sharing!
