DIY Pedestal Picture Holder

Have these been seen in the blog world? Yep. So, to those before me...I commend you! =)
But, I couldn't resist. I made my own version.

What I used:
Glass Candle Stick Holder
Unfinished Wood Frame
Spray Paint
Distress Ink
Metal Craft Clip

I spray painted the candle stand with Rustoleum's Anodized Bronze and the frame with one coat of AB and one coat of Krylon's Dark Taupe.

I sanded the frame and distressed with Walnut Distress Ink.

I used E6000 and glued a metal craft clip to the top center of the frame. Once dry, I centered the frame on the candle stick and glued them together. ;)
I added a pic of my handsome hubby and I. It's the "newest" pic I have of us so it will be my go to pic in several posts I have a feeling.

Here is how it turned out:

Super inexpensive and oh so chic!
