Candlestick gets a makeover

I was in the Salvation Army the other day and found this rather ugly candlestick. But, I could see how some paint could bring out this diamond in the rough so into my basket it went. A little farther down the aisle the big glass vase caught my eye. It just so happened that the bottom of the vase was the exact same size as the top of the candlestick. Well, waddaya know! So, a little black spraypaint and epoxy was all I needed to take this...






To THIS...




I love how the ridges in the vase create the reflections on the wall when the candle is lit. The breakdown on this little beauty is:
Candlestick...$2.00
Vase...$1.80
Candle...$1.00
Not too shabby!!

  1. I love this. Buying ready made candles that are this tall can be pricey. This is perfect! I got to try to find some for myself!!
