Candlestick Makeover

Hope everyone is having a very Happy Valentine's Day! 

We made a bit more progress on the backyard and the kitchen shelves over the weekend, and I finally got these candlesticks painted and in the house!

These were all Goodwill finds, the white one in front is originally from Pier 1 and when I bought him about a year ago he looked like this:

Nothing a little paint can't fix! He got a few coats of primer and white paint. A few months ago (yes I've been meaning to paint these candlesticks for quite some time) I found these two:

They don't look so bad as is, but the paint was a creamy color and starting to flake off in places. I gave them a good scrubbing and a few coats of gray paint. Since the original paint was flat I didnt even bother priming these ones.

I added some gray and white candles I already had on hand and they are now living happily next to the china cabinet!

I'll be taking down our Valentine's Day decor tomorrow and have a few little St. Patty's projects in mind!


  1. Those are some BIG candlesticks! They look great all painted up!

  2. I'd love for you to come link this up at my Tuesday Time Out Party!
