|Blessings Unlimited Candle Set|
Here sit my candles ready for their makeover....
To achieve the vintage distressed finish, I first sanded the black finish and applied the two coats of gold metallic paint. I then chose a cream color and a light blue paint from my leftover paint shelf to apply to the bases to replicate the painted finish on the three candlesticks. Next, I sanded through the top coats to expose the gold finish and finally applied Howard Citrus-Sheild Premium Paste Wax in Golden Oak. It buffs so easily to a brilliant, long-lasting shine. It has become my favorite 'go-to' wax.
Although I did not include scripture on my candlestick bases, I am thrilled with the outcome. My newly completed candlesticks sit proudly in my bookcase and I'm loving the newly distressed colors and finish.
