Before and After: My Latest Projects


Very shabby candle holder pair that I thought would be cute in white... Really any color would be an improvement.

I think these would look great with a pair of the glass inserts for holding tea lights and votives.


Then I found this large candelabra and I had to have it. It had to go white. I like white for candelabras so that any color of candle can be used. I think it adds an elegance to it as well. 

It took several coats of primer and paint, but I am very happy with how it turned out!


Finally, for my Christmas "undo"; a recipe card holder. The gingerbread is cute, but he had to go - sorry.

Of course it went white and I had just gotten these vintage images and had to use one for this project. This little girl with the roses was perfect!

  1. I definitely agree about the Gingerbread upgrade. He looked like he was wearing one of those Turbie Twists on his head! Ba ha ha! Much prettier now! And I love the candelabra! Gorgeous!
