First and foremost, the curly legs of the metal candlestand are removed using pliers and are replaced with the glass candle stand by adhering the two pieces with the help of E6000 applied to the rim of the glass.

A distressed paint effect is brought to the candlestick by making dabs of black acrylic paint at random spots throughout the structure. Some more dabbing with a hue named Classic Carmel totally transforms the essence of the stand into a weathered metal piece.
