Brightened-Up Brass

First off, a BIG, BIG thank you to all your sweet comments about the Ohdeedoh post! I was thrilled to have gotten such a neat opportunity! What's more, I am very excited about the months ahead and the interest this blog has brought to many of you. Thank you for all your wonderful support!

NOW . . . on to the good stuff.

My mother-in-law knew I was on the lookout for a bunch of old candleholders, and she found all of these (at the same thrift store, by the way)!! I can't tell you how excited I was!!


After a few cans of spray paint (primer included)
and a few new candles from the Pottery . . .

. . . they were miraculously transformed!


I needed this. Big time.
Pin It Now!

  4. What a great look for such a fun and eclectic room! Did you use primer? I tried spraying brass candlesticks once w/out primer and it didn't wirk very well. The paint never seemed to bond with the brass. Just curious, because I want to try again. I'm going to feature this tomorrow on my blog. I hope you'll stop by and take a look!

  5. OK, duh, I just read the answer to my question. Sometimes I get so excited about a project that I look at photos, comment and then go back to read the post. That is when I often answer my question. DUH! Still featuring though! :)
