Last week I found this set of candlesticks by Pottery Barn at the Goodwill and I knew they needed to come home with me.
They are made of mostly wood and and in good shape , but were just too dark for my taste. I decided to paint them with the same aqua paint that I painted the French Vanity with. After 2 coats of paint I finger rubbed on gilding wax and then sealed and aged the candlesticks with dark wax/hemp oil.
|I love gold with pink dried roses|
|You can see here how the wax/oil mix rubbed off the gilding wax in a good way|
I am loving them now and I think they look a lot better!
