My latest Wonderful Whatnot turned out to be a favorite of mine! I now have an obsession with painting everything insight! As I walk around my house something catches my eye and I am immediately on a mission to paint it! That’s where the story starts with my candle holders. They were just the basic gold cross candle holders…very commercial! I wanted to customize them right away!

I painted them with the same Antique White acrylic I have been using and glazed them with the Ralph Lauren Smoke Glaze that Whitney owns (next can is on me ~ seeing how we use it every day!) That was pretty much it as far as the candle holders go. I love the way the glaze caught the detail in the crosses!

I couldn’t put any candle on these (that would be so commercial). So, I found some super cheap candles at Hobby Lobby and painted them with Behr Bison Brown eggshell and wrapped cheetah print ribbon around each one! I love the look of the candle holders and the candles now and they are so original and inexpensive! What a transformation ~ Enjoy! I will also be posting this whatnot on Met Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch… You can check it out here!
