I took a little break the past week but I’m back and I’ve got another gorgeous thrift store makeover for you today! And I know you are going to love the stunning ‘Treasure Blue’ color I used! If you can picture a tropical lagoon in your mind – that’s the color!
My motto here at Setting for Four is to create a stylish haven for my amazing family without breaking the bank. Furniture and accessories can be expensive – but it’s so easy to save money by giving basic decor items a paint makeover! I love showing you how I save money on my decor!
Check out how I transformed a pair of boring brown candlesticks into these stylish ‘Treasure Blue’ Chalky Finish DIY Painted Candle Holders!
I love to layer my tables, mantel and bookshelves with lots of accessories to add color and pattern to my home. But home decor accessories can be really expensive …so I love to DIY mine whenever I can!
Chalky Finish DIY Painted Candle Holders
I scored these candlesticks at the thrift store – I loved the size and the shape…loved that they will hold pillar candles too, but I don’t love the brown color!
I gave them a face lift with a gorgeous aqua/teal blue paint called ‘Treasure’, perfectly named because they are my treasure now! Here’s how I transformed them!

- Pair of Candle Holders
- Chalky Finish Paint in Treasure
- Foam Brush
- DecoArt Americana Decor Clear Wax
This really is the easiest DIY – all it takes is adding two coats of Chalky Finish paint, letting each coat dry completely.
I added a final coat of clear wax. That’s it! No sanding, no prepping required with this paint!
I love the pop of watery blue color these DIY painted candle holders add to my home, the color of a tropical sea.
