Ever start a project and end up scratching your head halfway through? That's what happened to me with these fleur de lis candlesticks. I picked them up from a thrift store last week. They were originally white but a little grungy. I thought they would look good with a chocolate brown makeover but...
They went back to white. I did indeed paint them brown but it was a flat brown and they looked, well, icky. So I gave them a fresh coat of gloss white over the brown. I did just one coat because I did want some of the brown to show through for an aged look.
Not sure if you can see remnants of the brown peeking through in my photos.
I added some French script candles to them. The ones from my Etsy shop fit quite nicely. I may have to use these for props when photographing them!
So three coats of spray paint later and I'm back to white. At least it's not the original grungy white.
