I found this beauty at the Goodwill a couple weeks ago. It didn't have a price tag on it but I knew the price would be right...which it was. Only 1 buck! Can't beat that. As soon as I saw it, I loved the ornate detailing and the thick stand. The scroll design is too cute...well maybe not in gold but I knew a little spray painting love is all it would take!
It is a beauty all black and shiny. Looks brand new! The only bad thing is that I haven't found a candle in my stash big enough to make the candle not look super tiny and somewhat lame. So I am still in search of the perfect topper. I also tried tying jute near the top but it just didn't have the right look. Sometimes you try things out, and they just don't work. But its worth trying!
I love it just plain black. I think I need a red or white candle and I may do a scrapbook paper wrap around my candle. Just to give it a little more something. I got a TON of other stuff the day when I went thrifting and will have many more projects to share!! If only this weather would stay nice for me. Too bad I can't control that. Have you found any great thrifty finds lately?
