99 Cent Candle Do-Over!
Good Morning, Friends!! So glad you had the time to stop by for a visit!
So, last weekend, one of our local churches, had their “Annual Rummage Sale”!! I’m sure you can imagine it didn’t take me long to get up and ready for this! It started at 9a.m, so, of course, I was there at 8:55 with my tennie's on and ready!! Unfortunately, so were about 300 other people! No matter! I had a tremendously successful trip!! Many future projects will be forthcoming from the $13 I spent that morning! Yes $13, Woohoo!! I love a good rummage sale!
That brings me to today’s little project. No, I didn’t get it from this rummage sale! My sister had a garage sale a couple of years ago, and she knew that my Mom was going to have one, too. So what she didn’t sell she gave to my Mom to let her give it a try! Long story short I had first pickings at what neither of them were able to sell, before they were donated!!
That’s how I came to own this black, rod iron candle stick holder. Remember when Black rod iron was all the rage? Anyway, it wasn't to my taste anymore either, but I thought I could make it into something I liked!
2 years later I had a bracelet break, and got a great deal on some antique white accents spray paint within a couple of days and I saw what my little candle holder could be!!
I used a wire brush to get all the old wax off and then I spray painted it. About 2-3 coats worked beautifully! And as I said, I had a cute little pearl and crystal bracelet (costume jewelry). It broke and little pearls and crystals went rolling everywhere. So, I picked them all up and put them in a container for a future project. Isn't that what everyone does when their jewelry breaks?
So here is my little Candlestick do over which I achieved for 99cents (that was the deal I got on the spray paint!!) I hope you like it. What was once sitting in the corner back behind the door now makes a beautiful centerpiece on my Dining room table! Many Blessing you this week, I hope you have enjoyed my “cheap” or “chic” little project!
