I've had these candle holders forever and just didn't have a place in the house for them anymore. During a recent visit my gf and I played a game of use it or lose it and these were in the pile for me to use...if only I could find a place for them in the next 3 months...well that was only about 2 months ago so I'm way ahead of schedule. I'm thinking that the extra month will be like rollover minutes and I can apply it to another project!
They aren't bad...just dark and I'm not into dark right now. So a little Rust-oleum primer and some Rust-oleum gloss white and they were well on there way to a new life. I wanted to use them outside, but as it can be a bit breezy where we are I needed to find a way to make a hurricane shade for them.
I took a trip to my local Dollar Tree and found clear glass candle holders and these really pretty glass rocks. I glued the glass onto the bases. I already had the paint so total cost was about $5 for the glass holders and the rocks!
I can't wait to see how they will look at night with the candles lit!
