|The candlesticks are on the left. See them!?|
|Slight copper hue.|
While I was cleaning them up, I noticed that when I rubbed the metal material it seemed to look cooper. It made me think...."Copper antiques in verdigris color." I took Delta craft paint color Tropic Bay Blue and painted over the entire surface.I let the paint set up for a few minutes.
After about 20 minutes, I buffed the surface a little harder to shine them up. I liked how the paint was adhering to the wood in the cut out areas.
I attached the plates to the tops of the candlesticks with Gorilla Glue.
I had originally thought that I would hang them from the neck of the candlestick, but they ended in the cups circling the candles. If I get a chance, I might put them with a little jute tie and add them to the neck.
master bath redo has been dusty. Just needed a quick 'freshen up for the time being' kinda of thing. So I was looking for something to put on this one table and thought, "What about one of those candlesticks!?" I used one of them. Fun.
I have my finish carpenter coming over today to start the bead-board installation in the master bedroom and an appointment with a designer who will draw up plans for a built in for the television. The television is currently resting in a recessed area in the wall atop cinder blocks! My cabinet guy will not do work without this gal drawing up a plan. She's not too expensive and he is way worth it. But that is for another blog post!
Getting excited for a long weekend!
