Candelabra Bud Vase

Applying a coat or two of white spray paint is such an easy way to transform something from antiquated to fresh and modern. I bought these old candelabras a few months ago knowing I'd find some use for them down the road. I then put buds in each of the candelabras, keeping them functional and decorative. 

Tips for spray painting:
Be sure the weather is working in your favor (between 60-70 degrees is best)
Apply thin coats and be sure to allow each coat to completely dry before an additional application
Finish with a clear sealant (gloss or matte, whichever is preferred)

I got a little carried away with the spray paint and decided to spray paint a silver bowl I had previously been using for jewelry. It's amazing how something as simple as spray paint can give so much modernity.

I love this idea! You're right that a paint of coat can change everything - and candle holders is something I hadn't thought to paint! Great idea :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
