  1. Paint a piece of wood with several layers of your chosen Americana® Decor™ Chalky Finish colors, letting dry between each coat. We used Vintage, Treasure, and Whisper, but you can choose colors to match your decor.
  2. Use a sanding block to distress the painted wood and wipe away any dust.
  3. When you are happy with the finish, seal the paint by applying a coat of Clear Crème Wax with the waxing and finishing brush and buff with a lint-free rag.
  4. Determine how many candles you would like on the candleholder. Measure that number of holes so they are spaced equally and mark the spots with a pencil.
  5. Use 1" router bit to drill a hole at each measured spot.
  6. Add candles to holes.
