I finally tackled a project that has been on my to-do list for about a month now, Candle Holder Makeover!! YAY!!

I found these great pedestal candle holders at the Dollar Tree last month.  I knew right away what I wanted to do with them using the Vintage Effect Wash.  As you know if you follow my blog that I’m all about decorating with a coastal touch.  So I decided to give these candle holders a white washed look.

So let’s get started!!  I rounded up my paints for this project. I have a TON of Vintage Effect Wash on hand, but these two are my favorite. I thought the Patina would be perfect for a nice Spring-y feel, when I start decorating.

Step 1 – Paint Candle Holder

I know the candle holders were already white, but it wasn’t a pretty white.  I painted on one coat of the White Chalky Finish.  Depending on how thick you painted it on, it should dry within 20 minutes.

Then lightly brush your paint brush over the candle holder to create the effect you want.  You can go lighter or darker with this, whatever your personal style is.
