Goodwill TRICK becomes a Halloween TREAT!
As I was browsing Goodwill for any interesting Halloween items, I came across this lovely candlestick for only $2.99 and a candle which fit perfectly for only 99 cents.
When I got home, I noticed it was pretty beat up and one piece was even cracked. It didn't matter because the spray paint will camouflage it nicely.
So, I took it all apart and spayed it with the awesome $1.00 spray paint from Wal-Mart which I love for trivial tasks such as this. It covers nicely and does the job for basically pennies.
I sprayed it a shiny black and then Rub N Buffed it in silver to bring out some of the detail and to glam it up a little bit. I also rubbed the gold rod silver so it wouldn't be quite so noticeable through the glass pieces and it worked out wonderfully. I had these adhesive glitter decals in my Halloween stash and it worked perfectly on the short candle. It is finished and put away until October but I really like the way it turned out. A classic spooky candlestick and candle for under $5.00. Nothing scary about that. :-)
