Gold Angled Candlesticks

gold blocked candlesticks

Color blocking is big, but you guys know me, I’m not so huge on color. I decided to execute the trend with gold and grey weathered wood to keep it neutral, but still relevant. The angular lines on these ‘gold blocked’ candlesticks make a piece of 2″ x 2″ hardware store lumber way more modern and worthy of any table centerpiece or mantle.

What I love about this candlestick project is that the nice guys at the hardware store cut them in the lengths I wanted (3″, 5″, and 7″), so all I had to do was make the holes for the candles and get to the painting! Here are the materials I used!

gold blocked workflow

ONE using a 3/4″ drill bit, carve out a hole on the end of each piece of wood.  TWO sand the pieces until they’re smooth. THREE stain the wood with a light grey ‘sunbleached’ stain.  FOUR tape off in your desired pattern and spray with gold spray paint.

Like a lot of my projects, I really like that there are so many customizations possible.  How would you customize this easy project?  Lots of color?  High gloss?

Let me know!
