i think im the last person on earth to re-paint/purpose a candle stick in the blog world. in my defense, this is the first one i have seen that has been wood and not teeny-tiny. seriously, was it hip and cool to have such tiny little candle sticks? or worse, brass ones?
and for $1.50, can you say STEAL!
i scraped off about an inch of wax off of this baby before priming it. then i watered down some teal-ish paint and stained it. then of course, i shabby-ed it up a bit. im still working on what to put with it. and if it is going to even stay in the tv room. it might be too nice to hang out with spongebob and lego star wars.

I love the shape and chunkiness of this candleholder! It's hard to find them in just the right size. Great makeover on it too!
