Today's project is inspired by some Darlings that I have recently featured. Remember these?
Two awesome ideas that I sort of combined!
Supplies for my version:
Dollar Tree candlestick and vase
Finial dowel cap and small wooden circle (from Hobby Lobby)
Paint of choice
sand paper or sanding block
I had everything but the finial cap and the wooden circle so actual money spent was $1.30 plus tax. But to buy supplies excluding paint, glue, and sand paper would be $3.50 plus tax! So lovin' the little cost to this project!!
Let's get started!!
First of all, there's 3 ways you can do this.
Here's just the wooden circle and vase.
And this is my version!! So do what ever you like! Now to the painting!
I took the metallic pink paint I have and painted the candlestick, wooden circle and finial before gluing. Gave the candlestick a second coat....wasn't worried about it being a little streaky as I was going to spray paint it later.
Then I glued the wooden circle to the candlestick with cement and let dry.
Once the cement was dry I took my new stand and finial outside and used spray paint (Rustoleum's Ballet Slippers) and painted a final time. Once that was dry I then took a sanding block and 'destressed' away so the hot pink would show through!! Yay for double pink!! Then I glued the finial cap to the bottom of the vase.
All done!! Isn't she cute?!
I can't wait to use this for one of the special things I have planned for August Bash week!!
