My 'New' Candleholder

I found this candleholder at the thrift shop a few months ago, and just knew it had potential. I finally got around to doing something with it. Of course, I forgot to take a 'before' pic so you could see the ugly, 'brownish-don't know what color that is' color that it was.


I spray painted it Ivory, and then added chandelier crystals and beads. Filled it with soft pink votive candles....and I love it.












Hope you're having a sweet weekend.

SWEET!!! I just bought my first 2 cans of white spray paint. NOTHING will be safe for me anymore, lol. Got a few items that will look way better with a coat of spray paint, YAY!!

Love the shape of yours and the candles are so nice. Love the pink glittery stars, lol.

Hugs....

Fabulous! Wouldn't it be cute filled with little candies instead of the candles for a party?
I love your quote at the top of your blog, is it by Jennifer Loudon? It rings so true to me! May I put it on my blog? Please?
Happy day!

How cute!! What a lovely candle holder. It's amazing how a little time and some white paint can transform just about anything ugly into something so pretty.
