Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
Vintage Effects Wash, White Chalk Paint, Candle Holder
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.
Candle Holder Makeover
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.
Step 2 – Add Vintage Effect Wash
Next and finally I lightly went over the candle holders with my Vintage Effect Wash.
Add a little paint to a paper plate.
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.
So there you have it! I had this project done in less then 30 minutes, woohoo! If your looking for more ideas using the Vintage Effect Wash then check out DecoArt Pinterest page.
This was such a quick candle holder makeover. I think I might need to grab some more next time I’m at the Dollar Tree.
Oh and I found this cute Mercury Glass Candle holder at the Dollar Tree too. I got a total of 4 of them, they will be perfect for anytime of the year decorating.
All this will look great on my mantle for Spring/Valentines. I just love the Dollar Tree you never know what fun things you’ll walk out with!
