Trash to Treasure: Finials

Robb Whittlef shows Joan Steffend how to create beautiful accessories out of old finials.

Three finials and two plates are all adhered with wood glue to create an elegant tiered tray.


Tall finials or balustrade-shape finials are used to create classic-style candlesticks. The bottom plate and the top piece were purchased at a craft store, attached then painted. Be sure to place a metal disc underneath the burning candle.

Finial Footrest

Four large finials are secured to a piece of wood creating the base of the ottoman. The base is then painted and a pillow of matching size is placed on top.
