Painted Candle Sticks

I found these beauties at Goodwill.  I love the shape, the texture, the heaviness, and the difference of each one.  I just wasn't convinced I loved the color, so.......I painted them.
I gave a sneak peek during the Valentine Vignette post.
You can see all of the Valentine decor here.
I gathered my supplies and tackled that golden/brassy color by layering on the paint.  Here is what I used.
And here is how they turned out.


Now, they are more my style.
Be sure to follow me on Pinterest here.

  1. You lucked out.. what wonderful shapes. I never find anything at Goodwill, but then I've only been there 2 times :-) ... years ago...
    Must give it another try. Luv what you did to them.
    Cheers, Gee
