A simple DIY using spray paint to makeover old vintage brass candlesticks.
THRIFT STORE BRASS CANDLESTICK MAKEOVER
I usually keep a running list in my mind of items that I would like to have for our home and candlesticks have been on that list for quite some time. Candlesticks are timeless pieces that can be used in a variety of ways throughout all the seasons. As with most of my thrifting adventures, I find things when I least expect to, and that is what happened the day I made a quick stop at our local thrift shop. It also just so happened to be half off day for everything in the store, so I wasted no time picking up these seven brass candlesticks. Brass really isn’t my color and so on the way home I stopped, and picked up some spray paint to give these candlesticks a makeover.
HOW TO SPRAY PAINT BRASS CANDLESTICKS
Wash the candlesticks and remove any wax residue that may be on them.
Take the candlesticks outside and set them in a location that they will not be knocked over or touched.
Slowly spray a thin layer of spray paint (this is what I used) on each of the candlesticks. Allow the paint to dry for one hour and then apply a second coat of paint. If necessary, apply a third coat.
All the candlesticks to dry for 6-8 hours before using.

DECORATING WITH CANDLESTICKS
Candlesticks are one of the best ways to add a warm, cozy feel to our home. During our evening dinner meal, I light the candles as we gather around the table as a family. It’s a simple way to create an atmosphere of cozy living. One of the candlesticks was placed in the living room and I personally enjoy lighting it each morning, and enjoying the glow of the light while I drink coffee and have my quiet time.
This was such an easy makeover and it came in under ten dollars. All together the candlesticks were $2.50 and then I had the cost of the spray paint. The total cost was less than what I could buy one brand new candlestick for and that is just one reason I love shopping at a thrift store.
