Farmhouse pillows are my weakness. Gorgeous rustic goodness that can be used in any room of your home. Sometimes I feel like I want to buy one of each. I of course don’t have enough room in my home for all of those pillows. But a girl can dream! So I thought I would round up a few of my favorite here and share them with y’all!
Cement crafts have never been easier to make. You can add a faux concrete finish to any surface with this easy to use product.

Did you know that you can make wooden candlesticks from table legs? Well you can! It is so easy and you can add a rustic touch with the new Texture Chalk Paint from FolkArt. This paint is actually coming out within the next few months but I was able to test it before it was even available to the public. Fun right? So you can see more about the paint and making the candlesticks below.
Supplies needed to make these wooden candlesticks:
- Table legs from the home improvement store
- Wood circles from craft store
- Wood glue
- Finish nails
- Texture Chalk paint from FolkArt
- Pouncer brush
Step by Step Instructions:
Start by making your wooden candlesticks. You will want to find the center of the circle to add the table leg. Draw on two lines that are the same length and touch the outer edges of the circle. Connect these two lines from end to end as shown below. The center of that “X” is the center of your circle.
Drill a hole large enough to accommodate the screw on the table leg in the center of your circle piece. Then screw in your table leg. Add wood glue to the top of the table leg and add the other circle. Secure with finishing nails to hold everything together until the glue dries.
All About Texture Chalk Paint
Let’s talk a little about the paint we are going to use while the glue dries. The new Texture Chalk paint from FolkArt is perfect for those that want a rustic, worn, layered look to their projects but in just one coat. Yes I did just say one coat! You can layer the colors for a different look or just go with one. You can sand it back to reveal part of the wood if you want. The possibilities are endless! You should be able to get it at Plaid Online within the next few months if you want to try it for yourself.
Once your glue is dried, you can start adding your paint. I tried several methods for applying the Texture Chalk paint but the one I loved the most was with a pouncer brush.
Want to watch me paint one of these wooden candlesticks live? Just watch the video below for all of the details on the paint and how to use it. Plus I have a few more cute projects to show off in the video.
Once completely painted, allow the paint to dry and these wooden candlesticks are ready to display around your home. Want to add a little more flair? You can try some burlap flowers around the bottom of your candlestick. Just create a mini wreath and wrap it around. You can find the flowers through my Amazon affiliate link by clicking here.
