Then on our recent trip up North, we had some time to burn, so it was my son that suggested we stop in World Market. First place I always head to is the bath and beauty section to
put try on some lotion, and check out their candles. That's when these beautiful antique looking candles caught my attention. They were the same size as the wooden ones I bought. I checked the price and they were, Can you believe this they were $20 each!
Wow! I thought to myself, I can do the same with my candlesticks,
I already had the milk paint. I just needed to buy some antique wax.
All I did, was paint the candlesticks with two coats of Miss Mustard Seed Milk paint in Ironstone. By the way, I found working with Milk Paint very easy!
Distressed them with a medium grit sandpaper. Using a slightly damp cloth, I gently applied small areas of Antique wax where I wanted the worn areas of the candlestick showed. Then with the same slightly damp cloth, I buffed the wax around it.
I loved how they turned out. I seriously can not wait to use them to decorate for Fall!
