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.
Do you remember this old lamp I got free from a neighbor?
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.
