I decided to use the broken candle holders as legs for my crate, creating a new table for my front porch! I broke the second candle holder in the same place as the first to make the legs even (no small feat)! Then, I painted the candle holders with a creamy-colored spray paint that echoed the color of the crate. Once the 'candleholder' legs were added, I turned the crate on its side so I could use it as storage or display and placed a frosted piece of plexiglass on top to support our beverages or candles.
This crate is my favorite finds of the summer, and it will serve many purposes (and take on many looks) in the future.
