After: Colonial stenciled candle board / box.
Black with hues of red.
Mr. H cut the bottom part off for me, then I sanded it, painted it, stenciled then sanded again.
I used a pencil marked strip of wood as a template for the nail holes;
then I topped it off with Clair de Lune candles.
Now all I need is something to put in the box part. Any suggestions?
