Before and After

I chose to share this Before and After project because it shows how easily something can be "fixed" to work with your decor. This is a vintage ceramic pedestal that I found at a thrift shop.

 As you can see, it started out a golden color. It may work for some, but it was not the cottage style look I love.

So of course, I painted it white! When in doubt, paint it white. That's what I say! It is now a gorgeous white pedestal candle holder ready for any color candle. All it took was a good cleaning, 2 coats of white primer, and some white paint.


  1. Great idea. My solution to bad color is also to paint it white. Your candle holder is now a beautiful item.

  2. So much better in white! White is so peaceful and classy at the same time. Nice blog!

  3. wow what a very pretty candle holder it turned out to be

  4. What a difference!
    Looks great!
