Do you ever wonder what to do with all of the natural wood DIY projects you come across in woodworking shops and craft stores?
Do you feel that you can only paint so much and it would be nice to have some wood accents?
Wood accents that look like they’ve been around a while?
I had a pair of wood candlesticks tucked away in a box waiting for a makeover and I decided it was time to just get ‘er done.
This is what they looked like when I purchased them new:
And now, after their little makeover…
I mean, how simple is something like this?
No Master Of Science degree required.
Or Master of Arts.
Oh wait…that is for something different. My bad.
All I did with these is age them just like I always do with any of my weathered wood projects.
After they were dry, I mixed a little pearl metallic paint with just a dab of green to create a little “spring sheen.”
I painted the bottom…
…and the inside.
I love the combination of the “old” wood and “spring sheen.”
Perfect for a natural table setting this Easter. Or anytime.
