Years ago, I liked the sleek look of brushed nickel/silver. I loved these pillars. Since then, however, my tastes have changed and these candlesticks have been relegated to the cupboard. Still, I liked the shape of them and they came to mind when I was looking for a way to update my fall mantle.
I took advantage of the unseasonably nice weather we've been having and headed outside with my candlesticks, a flattened box, my bench cookies, and two cans of spray paint.
The bench cookies let me get the candlesticks up above the cardboard to get a nice coat of paint all the way to the bottom of the candlesticks.
The first coat was black.
Then I sprayed on a light coat of metallic brown.
Ta Da! Updated candlesticks that look fabulous with my Fall pillar candles.
Now, I just need to wait until Halloween stuff gets put away and my beautiful candlesticks and be part of my Fall mantle.
