Brass Candlesticks Revived in Aqua

This old pair of brass candlesticks came from the same attic sale as this pair. They had been sitting out in the rain and were discolored and splotchy when I came to their rescue. I am sure they would have been destined for the trash, if I had not come along at the right time.


I love thier shape and thier tall stature. After painting on the Bullseye prmer, I painted them gray and they just looked kind of bland to me. So...I mixed some turquoise and cream craft paint to make a creamy aqua color. I gave it a couple of coats and distressed the edges.


Ahh...Much better!
