Upcycled Wood Candlesticks

by - 4:00 AM

Here's the first of my makeovers from yesterday's AmVets loot.  Remember these wood candlesticks before?

Not very pretty.  And here's the after.
 
I gave each a couple of coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Louis Blue.  Once they were dry, I broke out some sandpaper and just sanded them in random areas for an aged look.
 
I love how the original brown wood shows through now.  It's just enough dark to play off the light blue paint.
 
I added some of my French script candles which I think look pretty against the blue hue.

This is the first of many makeovers I have in the works.  Thanks AmVets!
