I have this candle holder piece that has the same pattern as my headboard, in the same bronze color. I had it over the bed, and it looked great. But then I changed my whole bedroom scheme, I had to rethink it. I started by painting it a soft white color using Rustoleum.
As you can see, I painted it off white….then I thought…I would add some bling..This package came with 8 rows…..so I cut in half using only 4 rows width. I had some thin elastic thread. As I added the rows of bling, I secured the beginning and end section of the bling with hot glue . I then wrapped the elastic thread around the bling to hold in place. This was great. I didn’t have to hot glue the whole thing.
I added a string of beads with sparkle and 3 crystals hanging from each candle holder.
I’m missing one of the glass cones that you put flowers in. One had broke so I am looking for another vessel to use, so in the meantime, I’m using these glasses. The flowers give the piece some color. It came out too formal. I was even thinking of using a couple of mason jars. I then did some distressing in the rows that have no bling, to give it that shabby chic look.
This makeover shows how you too can take something so plain, and glam it up!!!!
