DIY Weekends: Spray Painted Candleholders

diyweekends

Like magic, you can make metal candleholders look like age-worn living room displays. Just use neutral colored spray paints for a result that looks authentically antique!

 

MATERIALS

new/old candleholders
spray paint (in neutral colors)
masking tape

 

STEPS

1. Work on flat surface in a well-ventilated area, clean the candleholders using a dry cloth before starting.
2. Cover the glass with masking tape (to avoid getting paint on it), you may also remove glassΒ Β from the frame (if applicable).
2. Spray the interiors of the cardholder FIRST, place it back on a flat surface then spray the exteriors.
3. Let dry completely (at least 2 hours). Repeat if necessary.
4. For candles, I suggest tealight candles (flat shaped top).
