Thrifted Treasure ~ candelabra

Happy Monday, y’all!! I’m so excited to start this week off with our monthly thrift store challenge! Every month, a group of us get together and blog about a recent thrifted find(s). I always love seeing what other people find at the thrift stores!

This month I found the sweetest candelabra! I’ve been looking for a candelabra, but haven’t found one until recently, and I couldn’t be more excited!!

Such a cute shape, but I wanted it more of a vintage gold color, so I added a little Rub’n Buff, in the color “gold leaf”.

I also dry brushed it with just a touch of white paint.

Isn’t she lovely!! I love the ambiance that candles create!!

Just in this picture…

  1. Hi Emily,

    Great candelabra and adding the Rub N Buff with a just a touch of white was a great idea. Adds a touch of the aged quality. This is a beautiful find.

    Waiting as I type this for my Thrift store to pick up a pair of French nightstands. My garage looks like a furniture store right now.

    Enjoy your day!
