Knock Off Restoration Hardware Candlesticks

I didn't mean to make these a knock off, but as soon as I finished them, I thought "these look like something that would be at Restoration Hardware". I wandered over to their site and found these:

I thought these would go to Shayne's shop, but I think I'm keeping them!

Saw your blog's name and "design mission" and had to join as a fellow "repurposer" and "upcycler". Great job on your R.H. knock-offs!
