Goodwill Candlesticks Makeover

I'm still on a painting and glazing kick.  There is no end in sight.



Here's the before.  Uglies from the 80s.



I painted them mint green (also known as Valspar's "Summer Sigh"), and then glazed them.  Look at the difference the glaze makes!  It really does make them, I think.



It gets into all those crevices and "dirties" them up just the right amount.






You can find these in my Etsy shop.  Perfectly shabby!

  1. What glaze did you use if you don't mind my asking? I am working on a project and not sure what glaze to buy.

  4. Very pretty paint color choice. You reminded me that I have a pair of garage sale candlesticks very similiar to these that I picked up to re-do as well and totally forgot about them!
