I am revisiting this post that originally posted on November 17, 2009. I am sharing this with Chari and her Sunday Favorites. I’ve always liked this candelabra, and I intended to sell it, but it didn’t sell. It sits in my living room next to my new media center.
Did you know that if you actually read the directions on a can of spray paint, that it suggests washing your piece with soap and water and allow to dry?
I’m showing you this little thingy, I got it in the electrical dept at the Habitat for Humanity Restore. The part of the lamp that I wanted to hold the candle was too small. I had to find something else to enlarge it.
This is the base of the lamp. I painted the entire lamp heirloom white (spray paint) The base has nice details, but I think they show up without adding another color.
I was able to score some crystals to add to this lamp. It was very difficult to find a candle to fit the center piece.
I love how this candelabra turned out. However it didn’t sell at our show. This one did though.
