I bought this candle holder at the thrift store for 5.00 (50% off day!) -- it still had the Crate & Barrel sticker on the bottom. It was pretty enough but didn't match my decor.
The brass candle holders screwed right off so I sprayed those with a flat, black paint. I gave the wood part a coat of Paris Grey chalk paint and then a coat of Antique White.
After lightly distressing, I gave it a coat of clear wax and then buffed it to a soft shine. I already had the berry garland and candle holders and added a few small pumpkins.
I think this will be a fun piece to work with for Christmas too so it will get a lot of use! How's your fall decorating coming along? Can you believe it's almost OCTOBER?? Happy Fall!
