random hardware = lovely candlesticks

A few weeks ago, my tag sale partner and I hit a sale that was advertised as a tool and hardware sale.  Our hearts went pitter patter, naturally.  By the time we rounded up piles of random bits and pieces, the entire crowd was helping us brainstorm projects.  I think they found us adorable and slightly crazy, which sounds about right.  My kinda tag sale.  

Both items I scored - hinge springs and tractor axle nuts, or so I am told - lent themselves rather naturally to candlesticks.  All they needed was a good bath and a spray of polyeurethane.  The hardest part of this repurpose was finding 1" diameter candlesticks. Thank god for god - these are actually church candles.
