The combination of the glass and wood/metal would really catch someones eye! (Cool toothbrush holder for the bathroom) Posted: 11:23 am on January 4th

All of the above ideas sound great.
Definitely do not paint it. I've seen
lots of candle holders/arrangements made
from tree stands. This would not take much
as it is such a beautiful piece with it's color.
Let us see what you decide to do. Thanks Posted: 11:27 pm on January 3rd

CleverThinker writes: Great foundation for a great idea to come! You know...you could build a 'tree'out of pipe....start with a piece of dowling in the center...slip pieces of pipe and T's on it. Then, stick a striaght piece of pipeout of the T with an L at the end, facing up. As you get closer to the top, make the horizontal pipes shorter like a christmas tree.

Add Votives on the ends, ornaments....cool Junk tree with real candle light! Depending on how big you make it, it could be a centerpiece on a table or larger on a night stand. What a great find!!
