Vintage Wood Cheese Pedestal Knock Off

I fell in love with a Pottery Barn Vintage Wood Cheese Board Pedestal and I wanted one, but I didn't like the price tag at $ first plan was to find something similar at the Good Will store or Salvation Army.  I had no luck.  As I was grazing through Hobby Lobby I took a detour down the wood isle and there it was!  Ding, the light bulb went on, I can make it myself. 

This is the Pottery Barn version:  This is a versatile piece.
Vintage Wood Pedestal, Small

This is my version:

Items you will need:
Elmer's Wood Glue
Wood block
Wood candle stick holder 4

Decide were you wood like put the candle sticks

Glue the candle holders

Wipe off excess glue.  Let dry

Sand down the wood with sandpaper and stain to the color you like.  I wanted a darker look but I used what I had.

Here is staind and unstaind version:

 I thought they turned out super cute and only costed me $4!

Its Hump Day!
