I found this cool candelabra, dripping with crystals, at the thrift store, for $8.99. I couldn't resist bringing her home. (you just know she's a girl!)
The first thing I did was remove all the crystals and clean them. It was actually FUN cleaning them and watching them start to sparkle. Out of the 20 crystals only one is missing. I thought that was pretty good.
Next I painted her white and added some pale gray to the raised areas. Some of you may not agree with painting this piece, but my theory is, anything from a thrift store is fair game!
Here she is with her new white coat and shimmering crystals.
I surrounded her with some mercury glass pieces for a little extra sparkle.
So very girly girl!
Here she is plugged in. The little light bulbs cost almost as much as the candelabra.
