What To Do With A Couple Of Candlesticks

Hello everyone, welcome to another edition of Frugal Décor Tuesday where I'm coming to you by candlelight.   

With Valentine's Day around the corner, I thought it would be the perfect time to share What To Do With A Couple Of Candlesticks that we picked up for a whopping $8.00 at Goodwill.

Tall Iron Candlestick Makeover for a wedding

I was instantly drawn to them because I knew they would be perfect for my daughter's wedding this summer.

This is what they looked like before I went all crazy with a can of Primer White spray paint.

Three thin coats later and they're humming the Wedding March.

Can you see in the reflection on the fireplace glass that our feline child, Sexy Rexy, could care less?

It is going to be an outdoor wedding and the décor theme is a rustic charm.

So to add some of that rustic charm, I distressed them with a sanding block to reveal some of the iron colors.

To dress up the tall white pillar candles I sewed a couple of burlap sleeves from ribbon I had in my stash.  Burlap is going to be a BIG part of the decorating scheme.

I will sew regular burlap sleeves for the candles and embellish the candlesticks with tulle and florals on the Big Day.

In the meantime, they look pretty with a Parisian vibe in my living room.

The wine for two on the blanket in front of the fire is for your viewing pleasure only.

I drink white.

...and if I parked this butt on the floor, especially after a glass of wine, I'd have one of those I've fallen and can't get up moments.

Thanks for joining me for another edition of Frugal Décor Tuesday.  I appreciate your visits and I especially love it when we have a chat in the comments.

Have a great week and I look forward to seeing you again next Tuesday when I share...

I'm not sure what I'll be sharing yet.  It might involve diamonds.

I'm sharing this project at these fabulous LINKY PARTIES
