Beachhouse candle holders with a funny story

So I bought this porcelain candlelabre in the Netherlands and it broke on the way back home. I was thinking what to do with the candle I had bought for it.
So went on a search. Than I stumbled on these in my shed. Now this is funny. Eight years ago I had a hipsurgery and had to walk with crutches for 2 months and than another 2 months with a doctor House cane (I was 38). Doctors adviced to put the bed on wooden blocks to make it higher and so hubby got me 5 blocks to put under the bedlegs and one for the middle support. These are huge and very heavy!
Eight years later I don't need them anymore and besides we replaced the bed and they don't fit now, but I had never threw them out for some reason.
Painted them a very shabby white, distressed them a lot and added the number on them and got two very shabby beachhouse candlelabra LOL
What do you think?
