Painted Candlesticks ~

DIY Paint | Inspiration

I recently picked up these bad boys.
Yep, that is wax melted all over that shiney wood- awesome!

I took them apart and diligently picked and sanded my way to the original wood. Luckily they came apart super easily. 

I then took them to my spray paint room (aka the side yard) and doused them with a little Rustoleum Heirloom White. My Mom then graciously sanded away until these lovelies appeared. 

Love them!

Oh yes, much better, Chelsea! I don't know if I'd have given them a second look in their "before" state.

So funny, I bought one in the same exact style as those just mine is long instead of a circle form and did the same exact thing to it!! Love it!!
