Before & After paint

I have had this candelabra for a few years I got it at a yard sale once where a lady had died and her 3 daughters were selling everything in the house for a quarter !!! yes 25 cents each. People had piles 6 ft tall in the yard and don't get in there piles !! either. I did not knowing what the heck was going on.

I got this candelabra and lots of jewelry at this sale,I bought a lot of clothes for someone then ended up donating them  because the person didn't like the clothes.

This is the candelabra I had on my table at a ladies luncheon I previously posted about

Before painting white


This is how it looked on my table 


I like my birds nested in it 

After painting white 

My crystals prisms  are pink from mod podge glue and pink food coloring I mixed a little of both till I got the color I wanted then hung on sides of a glass to dry

Then I brought it in my studio and set it in my east window on my silver wedding cake square which I bought off of a florist that does weddings, he said after a couple years using them he sells them, so I picked it up at Kent's Florist side walk sale one year 

I like it both ways painted and unpainted , what about you ?

For the first time I got a complete body spray tan the liquid one,not laying in a roaster tube 
so far I like it I went light my first time and in a couple weeks I'll go back and get it a little darker,all I need is mascara maybe some blush LOVE IT 

Linky parties I am joining in


  1. I LOVE the way it looks painted white! The before was nice but really like it in white.

  2. Your candelabra is so pretty painted white and I love the birds. Nice touch. Thanks for joining us this week at Transformed Tuesday.

  3. It's amazing how much a coat of paint changes the look...I need to think of that more often at the thrift store! I need to try that spray tan...

  4. You know how I feel about that paint it thing...but i do prefer this one white. I have sold that same candelabra twice and 25 cents was an amazing steal! Vanna
