Thrift Store Candlelabra

Remember this candleholder/candlelabra I picked up at a thrift store last weekend?  It was black and a bit grungy.  Here it is now:
After carefully removing the berries, I gave it a couple of coats of white spray paint.
Once the paint was dry, I had to re-attach the berry garland which was no easy task as it was in pieces.  I didn't want to have to use hot glue, so I just kind of bent them and wrapped them back on.  I added some of my French script candles for a Frenchy touch.
This will definitely be my centerpiece for the Christmas table.

Pretty! White paint certainly freshens up everything. Your candles look great in it and I love the bit of color from the berries.

Beautiful! I'm always amazed by what a fresh coat of paint can do. Your candles are the perfect finishing touch.
