How do you like me now?

I bought this candle holder years ago, right after we moved to Arizona.  To be honest, I never really cared
for it.  So I stuck it on our pot shelf, way up and out of the way.  I bought it because it was that rustic, southwest-y look that was so popular 10 or 11 years ago.  Even though it was not my style.  When I was redoing my pot shelf a week or so ago I took down that candle holder with the intention of donating it to the Goodwill.  But it's a great size; tall and kind of chunky.  I figured I would keep it but I still didn't like it.
 Enter my friend, Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze spray paint.  I figured I'd give it a shot and see how I liked it after a couple of coats of this beauty.
 I kind of like it.  Alot.  I should have done this years ago!  I stuck the red and white candle on top because the colors work but I am not wild about it.  I'll look around for something that I like better but for now it's so much better than before. I think it looks like a new candle holder.
It's amazing what a little bit of paint can do!
What things have you transformed with a bit of paint?

It's amazing what a little paint will do. I am a new follower. Great transformation.
I love what a little spray paint can do!

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I'll be honest, the clear coat of paint didn't totally stop the glitter from falling off. What can you do? I love me a little glitter so I'll just deal with it!
Hi Debra, You used my favorite color Krylon on this. The candleholder looks great with the new color. Thank you for linking to the Open House party and I hope to see you there again.

I love how the new painted candle holder looks. My mom used to spray paint things daily and yet I never have. Thanks for the reminder of just how awesome spray paint can be. I have a few black candle holders like yours that may just need to have a meeting with the spray can.
