A quick little paint project…..



After I bought the new drapes for the dining room the blue and white plates I had on the wall sconce shelves  suddenly didn’t look so good anymore. I searched and searched for something different to put on the little shelves but nothing was quite right. Then one day I saw some wicker candle holders while looking on Pinterest. I thought they would be perfect…..the only problem was they were really expensive! So, I kept searching and found these less expensive ones.


They were the perfect size and affordable! The ones I saw originally were a grey willow though and I thought of them every time I walked thru the room and saw the brown wicker ones. The other day it occurred to me to just paint them!!!


I brushed a little grey paint on them…..first a lighter shade then a darker shade. While they were better they still weren’t quite right though. So, I sanded some of the paint off and then they were just what I had envisioned all along!!!!!


A quick little fix and all it took was a little paint!

What a great idea! I have one of those wicker candle holders. I believe it's from a company called Pineapple Park. They are located here in GA. I like how you made them match your decor better.

Lovely! Love the checked drapes (are those new?!) and the painting was perfect. I need to really start doing some of that! I'm so not a DIYer, but I am inspired by all the bloggers who are.
