Who doesn't love candles? Many of us tend to stock up when there is a great sale. However, candles aren't always easy to store. They don't stack well and the different sizes means they take up more than their fair share of shelf space.
I have always loved vintage train cases, but they are becoming harder and harder to find. Take a gander at the prices on Etsy and ebay. The price combined with shipping can get pretty expensive, so keep your eyes peeled at the garage sales this summer.
I use my train cases for candle storage. They fit neatly under my living room shelves in what would be empty space. I decoupaged two of them many years ago. One turned out rather cute and the other, well - not so much. The green one on the left is "on the list" for a redo. And the the one on the far right is still in its original vintage state. All three are crammed full of candles and holders
The stacked baskets hold tapers and the basket second from the right holds my greeting card file.
Love the cherubs on the back in their little carriage...
Each side is different and follows the music theme...
More cherubs on the top...
I'm looking forward to re-doing the green one. When doing the green one (I have no idea of why I picked that color) I discovered that tissue paper images on a dark color don't work very well. A real "duh" moment!
How do you store your candles?
