Hi everyone! Today I have an easy thrift store decor project – DIY Painted Candlesticks. You know how much I love to decorate with style while saving money and saving time! How much I love to DIY my own home decor accessories to customize them with the colors that I love! This DIY paint project is one of the quickest and simplest one’s I’ve done – here it is!
I bought this large chunky wooden candlestick at the thrift store a few weeks ago for $2.99! I immediately fell in love with the shape of it, all of it’s curves and the fact that it was over sized – the perfect size for a pillar candle…and it’s price!
I gave it a light quick scuff sanding with 220 grit sandpaper and a 1/2 inch inch artist’s brush, then gave it two quick coats of this stunning sea glass blue colored paint. I love this blue color! It’s a calm, relaxed watery blue-grey color with a touch of green, a color that reminds me of the ocean.
I love how my thrift store candlestick turned out! It adds the perfect pop of coastal color to my home!
I have it sitting on my beautiful salt-oak finished bookcase in my office along with more thrift store finds – a thrift store vintage map of Virginia (where we lived for 3 years) that I put in a black frame and pieces of coral we’ve collected at the beaches we’ve visited in the past.
