Step 1: Drilling a hole for the candle to fit

Using the electric drill, drill a hole using the 20mm wooden drill bit at the bottom of the leg. If you have not used a drill before, ask someone who knows how to as this part is the trickiest.

Step 2: Refine and spray-paint

Using some wood filler and sandpaper, neaten up the table feet from imperfections. Spray-paint the candle holders using the Rust-Oleum spray paint. I used some of their amazing chalk paint. Afterwards I sealed the furniture legs using the Rust-Oleum Spray on sealant.

Step 3: Use your candles

Place the candles in the holes and enjoy your new and pretty candle holders.
