Candlestick Re-Do

Hi everyone,

I wanted to share with you my recent re-do.  I forgot to take a before photo but found a photo that was taken of my candlestick holder before I painted it.

Here is the photo before:

As you can see by the photo the candlestick is an off white and very distressed looking.  I decided to spruce it up with a bit of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg Blue.

I gave this candlestick holder three coats of ASCP and a good sanding after it dried.  I used a ASCP clear wax and left it overnight before I buffed it out.  I think it turned out beautiful.  You can still see a bit of the distressed crackle finish if you look closely.

This was a fun and easy re-do.  I think it turned out nice and adds a pop of color.
I have to say, that this paint is so easy to use and is not limited to wood.  It can be used on many items including metal (I painted a lid on a jar I had).  It goes a long way too.  :)

Well, this is my entry to this week's Dedicated House, Make It Pretty Monday.
