I love a good before and after, don’t you??
I especially love them when they are quick, easy and inexpensive!!
My “before” candlesticks…….
Although not my colors, for $1 a piece, I couldn’t pass them up!
After a little chalk paint….
…..and a little dark wax….
they were ready to go!
I set them on my stairway along with my other faux candles….
I just love candlelight, especially in the evening….
Then, reality set in! You see, I have 2 dogs and a cat!
(Can you see where I’m going with this?)
Real candles on my stairs is just an accident waiting to happen!!
So, on to plan B….
…..and another before/after!
Yes, that’s right…….it’s a twofer!!!
I have these two faux greenery orbs….
I replaced the candles with them…..
I like the scale but the color just wasn’t right, so….
….have you ever painted faux greenery orbs?
I figured “what have I got to lose”! If I hate it, I can always spray paint them back to green!
So, I got out my trusty Krylon spray paint in Satin Nickel
They came out great!
I put them back on my new candlesticks and the color was perfect!
After a little “tweakin” and rearranging…..
I’m so happy I decided to paint them!
I think I’ll be able to use them during the holidays, too!
So, let’s look at the before and after…….
Not bad for a $2 investment!
I’m always amazed what a little paint can do and how it can change the whole feel of a space!
Until next time………
