And I’m also kinda loving them on my dining room table. You know, if you weren’t a hoarder to begin with, this gig will sure make you one.
Good Lord, that garage.
Big Daddy and I spent half a day on Saturday cleaning and organizing The Hell Hole. I did it under great protest. All I wanted to do was get some sun! And just to clarify, there is no sun in our garage:(
So while I was out there for half a day, I unearthed a few more treasures I’d forgotten about. So I continue to do as I was asked and work through it.
I found eight big, chunky candle sticks, in eight different places.
So Sunday afternoon I selected $7 worth (three. They still had the price tags on them) to give a little makeover.
LOTS of lovely details in these !
All three are dark finished wood and all I could think about was layering colors on and distressing them carefully enough to show each layer.
Something slightly coastal
I stated with a good coat of Annie Sloan Provence. I love this color. It is the most beautiful turquoise ever.
Then a layer of white
And I slowly, deliberately began to distress all of those curves. I used a damp paper towel to clean off all the dust from the sanding and sealed all three with clear wax.
Looks pretty Coastal to me.
Seriously, I love these!
Blogs I love!
