A Crown and a Candlestick


This week while at the Goodwill I stumbled across a couple of pieces that I thought could be stunners.  
Before:




I painted them both with Garlic Clove by Benjamin Moore home-made chalk paint and then aged them with hemp oil/dark wax.  The last step was to rub on some gold gilding wax with my finger.
