Repainting Accessories


I don't know about you, but in the Midwest it has been chilly and rainy lately which always puts me in some kind of "gotta get ready for winter so I need get organized and start a project...or something to that effect!"  I have been trying to get rid of things and repurpose or recycle others. The other day I was cleaning out yet another closet and found a rooster candle stick that my mom had given me a few years ago, I liked it but recently updated my kitchen so it no longer went with my decor. So like everything else I suddenly get inspired, this is why there aren't many "before" pictures...I don't know exactly what happens to me but suddenly I'm in the middle of a project.  I went for my antique white paint and painted over the rooster candle stick, then sanded it down to make it look distressed.  Without spending anything at all I have a "new" old accessory that now goes with my decor.  Look around, if you love it but it doesn't go with what you have, it's amazing what a coat of paint can do!
