So, the taller candlesticks were my first victims.
If they weren't quite so gold they might have stayed as is. I'm not s big gold fan. They were painted to look like copper, almost, with the green aged look in places. (maybe it was just dirt and grossness:) But, I think it was intentional)
Gold and Green Glamour... almost...
We had a beautiful day here, FINALLY! It was warm; it was sunny; it was a smidge windy... so, I made sure to stay away from the house and car as I painted. (Lesson learned the hard way) I took my two purchases and my new Krylon Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint from my swag bag and headed out to make more spray paint marks on our driveway. There are several spray paint outlines of previous victims there as well.
I gave it two coats, but that was only because of the detail and and having to spray from different angles. It only took one to cover it, I just needed too many angles for one.
I have to admit... I didn't realize how great this paint looked. I'm not just saying that because it was free either. The lid of the spray can doesn't do it justice. Much like my pics are about to do too... the mirror next to them is painted flat black, so you can see a bit of the color of it here.
I took these last night and hoped for sunlight today for some better pics before I posted, but the sun isn't showing itself quite yet.
And, the new jewels on the constantly half empty mantle. Anyone have any ideas for this mantle?
Yes, they will get candles. Right now, I only have peppermint striped pillars for Christmas and the burnt orange and bright white ones we use when the power goes out :) So, pretend there are candles there that are just the PERFECT color....
Not bad for less than $4.
I'm tempted to find some glaze to use on these too.. I've never, ever used it before... I know, gasp.
