These were some wooden candlesticks that I've had for a couple of years. I'm trying to lighten up my house, so they were my first Annie Sloan Chalk Paint project.
I also had these two candlesticks that I thought really needed a makeover. What was I thinking when I painted these dots on them?
Here they are as the centerpiece on my dining table. I love that they are different shapes and sizes. I followed the design ethic of always grouping in odd numbers. It works every time.
I didn't use AS Paste Wax because the only kind I had was clear and I wanted these to have a darker color and some texture. I found another wax that was 1/2 the price and I thought would look just as good. It's called Fiddes Wax in Antique Brown and it's only $14.00 a can. Even with shipping, it was still cheaper and I think I got the same effect.
These are the first Zinnia's I've cut from my garden this year. I'll show you soon, just how much they have grown.
I had to get the flowers in a vase before they wilted but I still like the look.
I'm off to start a sewing project. Hopefully, I can show you that reveal soon.
