Pottery Barn Inspired Decorative Accents

SThe Architectural collection featured by Pottery Barn speaks to me. 
 I love the old chippy paint, curvy and scroll shapes. 
The minute I saw it I knew I had to make a version of this collection.
I had purchased a bunch of unfinished wood candlesticks and finials from Goodwill a while back with plans of grouping them all together. 
 They have sat in a drawer for over a year.  They were perfect for this project.
Each cost no more than 75 cents to make (with one exception). 
 All of the paint was left over from other projects.



The first finial is the exception.  The base is was found at goodwill. 
The other 3 pieces that are connected were found at Lowes for $12.





This urn is turned out to be my favorite.


Here is a close up of the distressing:


This was a fun project.  My only problem will be where I want to put them!!
I will be searching for older chunkier pieces to play with.

Good one! I like them next to the giant jar of wine corks. It looks like the candles wood be perfect to light while you have a glass of wine.
