Have an empty wall just begging for some sort of "wow" factor? This wall of tea light candles from Maggie's house tour (House Call: Maggie Mason of Mighty Goods) might be just the ticket. We bet it looks especially fabulous at night...

Repeat. Third repeat in two days. Yawn.
Indeed. Seriously, if you don't have new content to post, don't post at all. We're getting an overload of AT posts as it is anyway.
yeah, repeats make it look as if you arent reading AT.maybe once in a while it could be acceptable but its happening all too often here.
Wall of tealights looks great, but......light them!If they're not lit for a photo shoot, the back of my mind wonders if they're ever really used.That wall would look really extra awesome if painted a different color, too.
"Wall of tealights looks great, but......light them!If they're not lit for a photo shoot, the back of my mind wonders if they're ever really used."YES!!! that pic does not make any sense whatever with this particular headline.
To echo other comments -REPEAT AGAINand...light the candles.
yea, i'll bet the firefighters will be especially wowed.
Well, if one considers it, it probably looks like that 99% of the time. It went from blah to blah, except during times when it needs to impress, then back to blah again.
I posted this on AT back in 2006 (thanks google!):*****************Safe Candles:Little battery-operated flickering tea lights are available in craft stores (Michaels, $3) and dollar stores (uh, $1). Inside of a frosted-glass votive or partially-burned pillar, they look perfect. The little coin battery is replaceable and lasts 60 - 75 hours.Today I just gave away as Holiday Office Insignificant Gifts a bunch of the electric tea lights I fixed up in votives with a bit of botanical trim. I dimmed my office lights, "lit" all the candles and put them on my work table; everyone on my floor thought they were real and went bonkers when the found out they were safe and not hot. My workmates said they were the best gifts ever, and kept calling more people over. At one point my 2-person office had a dozen people in it!If you have a bit of electronic experience you can take the tea lights apart and wire them all to the same 3 volt source...100 little candles...clap on, clap off!posted by AlmostAD on 2006-12-19 23:11:28
I didn't read the title, just looked at the pic.They look like soap dishes.There is some awesome wall paper you could put there.Or get a mirror and an awesome light and reflect the light around....
Good idea. I've got a handful of battery operated tea lights I've been saving for just such a project. Would love to see it lit, of course :]
Got a tip, home tour, or other story our readers should see?
