Pinterest Inspired! Candle Sticks

Is anyone else addicted to Pintrest? It might be the greatest invention of all time. Now I don't have to buy all of the magazines, cut out pictures and glue them into my Look Book. It is all on line!!!!! Yay!

Anyway...I came across these lovely candle sticks.
I had to try it. Painting furniture and accessories is something I just LOVE and this set just screams "me".
This is what I started with. I needed to clean them up and scrape the old wax off. I also filled in the screw holes.
Here is my version! I am really happy with how they turned out. Nothing big or fancy but just right.
Here they are in action. Oh and by the way...these candle sticks and the lovely buffet they are on will be at the Kane County Flea Market today and tomorrow. Will they go home with you?
