Have you ever found something that you just simply fall in love with and want to marry?
(shhh… don’t tell my husband)
It’s an old candelabra. Yep… I fell and fell hard!
I found it at my mom’s house… she use to sell antiques years ago. I seem to find alot at her house… like the crate I used in “Crate Love.”
Thanks mom! :)
I was so excited about working on this that I forgot to take my before pics. BUT… I caught myself before I sprayed the last arm and was able to take a some! Phew!
So maybe you can get an idea of what it looked like before I started.
To begin… here’s my list of ingredients.
((Ok… the orange was for me to eat while I worked!))
First… I sanded and cleaned. Next, I primed and painted with spray paint.
Finally, I cut some satin ribbon and tied bows on the candelabra.
That’s it! Simple!
Oops… candles… I forgot the candles!!
No I didn’t! :)
I found them at the local Dollar General for $7.00. They are in frosted glass and smell divine!
I used double sided tape (velcro would work) to keep them on the candle holder… something temporary. Of course, I don’t plan to walk around with it. Although, that would be cool!
I think it’s “perty.”
But then I thought…
Could I make it “pertier”?
What about sitting it in a rusty old colander filled with flowers?
Yeaaahhh… I can see this tablescape in my head right now!!
And what would it look like lit?
Awww… It’s romantic!! A little out of focus but still romantic! :) Huh?
Don’t ya think??
Yep… I love my candelabra sooo much I could marry it!!
Hope you love it, too!
