Farmhouse Candlestick Makeover
French country, Modern Farmhouse, Cottage candlesticks
One of the ways I makeover things is with a simple paintjob .
The power of paint is AMAZING!
Here is a great set of 3 candlesticks I picked up a thrift store.
Nice form, a lot of detail in relief.
I used a very dry brush technique on these candlesticks.
Dipping the brush in the paint only very slightly and then wiping the excess off on the side
of the paint pot to ensure there is very little paint on the bristles. I use a slightly stiff brush
to work the white paint onto the candlesticks, letting the crackle finish that was previously
on the candlestick show through.
Waverly Chalk Paint
So the finished product looks like this.
French Country , Farmhouse, Cottage style Candlesticks
Ready Fo Resale
These candlesticks started out with a very dated 80's gilded and crackled look .
Just the kind of décor you'd expect to find in Grandma's house along with plastic floor
runners on the carpet and plastic protector sheets on the sofa !
And with a little paint they were transformed into modern day décor. They would fit nicely
into Modern Farmhouse, Shabby Chic, or French Country décor ! So here they are ready for
resale at All The Right Junk ~ Urban Market. #successfuljunkflip!
