SHOW & TELL #12 - Candleholder

Cindy, here,
has taken over for Kelli for Show & Tell and Mr. Linky. Kelli has done such a great job hosting this site and I've enjoyed participating in it with her. I'm sure Cindy will do just as good a job. Thank you Cindy for taking this on so that we have a place to Show & Tell about our things.

Several weeks ago I bought several things at a garage sale for a total of $3.60. One of the items was this 5 candle holder for 25 cents. I loved the shape of it, but as you can see it was in pretty bad shape and looked......ugly

I wanted to give it a sort of silver tone. We had an old can of white spray paint so I decided I might just spray it white, which would go with all different color candles.

The other day I was out for awhile and when I got back home my sweet Mickey said, "Come and look at the candle holder and see if you like it." He had sprayed it very lightly with the white paint, but on top of the black, it had come out exactly the silver toned look I wanted.

I love it!!!
