Metal stand candle hilder

Retrieved the stand from my neighbor's trash in a horrible state. I sanded the rust off, cleaned it up well, then painted it. Bought the solid cast iron candle holder at a sale for $10! So I painted it to match since it fit the stand perfectly. Then I just dressed it up a bit and voila.....a wonderful addition to my entryway. :)

Thanks! I was so thrilled when the candle holder fit on top of the stand. It was like they were meant to go together. I used to have it out amongst my potted flowers on my patio and light the candle at night, but I like it so much better with the berries and lights on it now sitting in my entryway. It adds a nice ambience at night for a dark corner!
