$5 Candlesticks for the Master Bathroom

5 Materials
45 Minutes
I absolutely love candle light and the warmth that it brings to a room. I purchased these wooden candlesticks at a local thrift store for $5. That's less that $2 each. And then I gave them new life!
They were very pretty in their natural state but i decided to change them up a bit. I bought them for my parents as I am staging their home for sale. Their bathroom is all cedar. So I needed to bring in a little white to brighten up the room.
I sanded the candlesticks with fine sand paper. Then used a tak cloth to remove any dust particles. Then I applied the white- I sprayed them with 2 coats of Krylon white paint. It dries very quickly.
Once they were completely dried, I used vinegar and steel wool to gently distress them. You can skip this step if you'd like - if the distressed look is not your cup of tea. I love how it came out!
Here's the final product. Sorry, it's a little cut off. Mom was the photographer. Now their bathroom looks great! I hope you enjoyed the project, and give it a try yourself!
