Candlestick Redo

Thanks to Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick, I have been introduced to Rust-oleum Metallic Spray paint in oil rubbed bronze. I have been trying it on several projects around the house, but here's my favorite one so far.

My mom picked up these 3 ceramic candleholders at a thrift store for $1 each - notice one has an original price of $9.99. They were in great condition without a single chip.

I tend to favor warmer tones in my home and these were just a little too white. So they sat and sat in the basement all summer long. Finally, inspiration hit! With two coats of rubbed oil bronze and a few apple pie candles from Walmart, they are a perfect fit in my living room. I just hope my mom doesn't want them back when she comes to visit next month!

  1. I was searching for inspiration for a redo of some ceramic candlesticks, but hadn't thought about painting them with oil-rubbed bronze. Yours turned out so attractive! The bronze paint really brings out the detail, and they look warm and beautiful, especially with the red candles. Thanks for sharing.


What's on your mind?
