Candlesticks

img_7036I just love the way these candlesticks turned out.  They remind me of  Restoration Hardware.

They would go with any decor and look good in any room.  They were with a box of stuff that the Mayor purchased and he thought I was nuts when I told him I was going to fix them up.  After having finished them I don’t think he’ll question my decision again when I say I would like that to refinish that.

I first painted them with a shellac, then 2 coats of ASCP Coco.  When the paint dried I applied a coat of Minwax over the entire 2 candlesticks.  Next I mixed Rustoleum Linen White with Minwax and dried brushed the candlesticks, leaving me with the finish you see.  I am so pleased with the way they look.  I am now plotting to do some lamps this way too.  They’ll look fantastic.
