ReVibe: cabinet doors and lighting fixtures into chic candle sconces


â??A cabinet door paired with a cast-off lighting fixture creates something so chic that even major retailers are doing it! Try this project with cast-off items youâ??ve got in your garage or for a couple dollars spent at Habitat ReStore!â??


â??I was convinced that Designer Denine had transitioned to Carpenter Denine for this segment, however stood firm to say that she only made a wood cut or two to create this super stylish candle lamp. The main pieces were standard items often collecting dust in a garage or on the shelves at Habitat ReStore. Go Denine!â??

Create a chic tabletop candle lamp in 6 easy steps:

Cast-off items needed include a small cabinet door, a short shelf at least 4â?? wider than the door for a base, a 2x2 wood spindle the length of the cabinet door width, and a cast-off wall light fixture with glass panels.

· Prep:

1. Clean with a heavy duty degreaser.

2. Wipe down with liquid de glosser.

3. Sand with a sanding sponge.

· Prime door, shelf (to be used as a base).

· Spray on desired color with spray paint or roll your paint with hot dog roller.

TRICK: â??Shabby upâ?? the edges and spot surfaces by sanding with a sanding sponge!

· Pilot holes into the support block and the lower cabinet back and screw block to cabinet.

· Remove wiring from light fixture and screw into cabinet door. Ensure that the fixture has a flat surface for a candle and is secure.

· Use a glue product called Power Grab (found at Northwood Paint or your favorite home improvement store) to secure the wood block/cabinet door already assembled. Allow to dry according to instructions.

Add a candle and youâ??re ready to enhance any environment! Make sure to NEVER leave a burning candle unattended, and by creating this cool piece of style in your living or work space, you may never want to leave!
