Friday Faves

~before~

Once upon a time in a land far away, Florida to be exact, my dad cut some table legs into candlesticks for me.
They were white. They were fun.
But after awhile, I found myself yawning everytime I looked at them.
What's a girl to do?
Bust out the black paint, of course!

~after~


When I say that it literally took me less than 10 minutes, I mean it.
I had this idea about 30 minutes before hub's friend was coming over. I ran upstairs and got to dippin' into that can of Old Faithful and slathered the paint on. There are six candlesticks altogether. After the last one was painted, I went back to the first and started sanding. Because of their shape, it went really fast. I love my stuff distressed, so imperfections actually made them perfect.
I admit, I spent the rest of the evening staring at my mantle and I didn't even yawn once.
