I found these fabulous little candle stick sconces at Goodwill for only $1.99 a piece, I'm sure you've seen something similar as you browsed a yard sale or junk store. They're that cheapy lightweight plastic shaped like something super ornate and fancy and colored with a shiney tacky gold. I've been eyeing Krylon's Glitter spray for awhile now, this was my excuse to buy some and give it a try.
Here's how I took them from tacky to fabulous:
I wiped these down before priming with a Rustoleum Primer.
Then did a couple coats of Krylon Cool Ocean Breeze (I'm in love with this color, seriously, buy some and spray paint anything with it!).
I finished with a hefty coat of the Krylon Glitter Blast in blue. The glitter darkened the color a bit.
To give them some visual weight I hot glued a small chunky glass vase (purchased at walmart for $1.69 each) to the top of the candle holder.
***My intention is to put these cute sconces on etsy . . . trying not to be too in love with them . . . trying***
I'm now on the hunt for a mirror with this kind of frame. I'm thinking a glossy banana yellow with clear crystal glitter. Possibilities are endless and super addicting here, begin at your own risk :)
Fun Fact: I'm going to spray paint my fire place that Ocean Breeze color (sans the glitter) . . . yep, you heard me.
