Upcycling a Garage Sale Find!
By LittleBitPretty on February 27, 2014
I love it when a plan comes together.
Like when I bought these wall-mounted candle holders at a garage sale… They weren’t really my style in their original state, but it was only $5 for the pair and I had a plan.
1 piece of plain wood (6’ x 10” x 1” - $8 at Lowe’s)
2 wall mounts
Rustoleum Oil-Rubbed Bronze spray paint
I’ll admit - after reading Stacy’s article on how amazing this spray paint is, I was kind of looking for an excuse to use it. Best part? It gave this plain ol’ wood a funky, metallic appearance, really making it stand out. Here’s the wood after a couple coats of the spray paint.
I was spray painting outside and the sunlight made it look a little crazy, but I kept on because I’m stubborn. I just KNEW it would be beautiful.
Once the wood was completely dry, I measured about 12 inches down on each piece, marking a place to put a screw. I then nailed the mounting gear to the back of the wood.
