I made these quick projects awhile ago, but I can't find that I ever shared them, so here you go. They really are easy ones and are made with easy to find junk. The first one is simple candle sconces ( I guess that are sconces--not sure of the official definition of sconce) made from some cutting boards I found at the thrift store. I painted them up, drilled holes for the wire and wired the bottles on. I used glass rocks in them and would be great for real candles, or those little flickering battery operated tealight ones.
The other project is made from wooden recipe boxes which are always at the thrift store. I popped the lids off, painted them and screwed them into an old board. They are great catch-alls for spices, or could be used in an office for office "stuff".
