Bronze Leaf Candle Holders {Thanks Rustoleum}

How was your weekend?  The weather here in the Northwest continues to spoil us.  Every summer about this time I wish I had air conditioning and every winter I decide it’s only hot enough for air conditioning a couple of days each summer and I don’t make the call to install.  Today was one of the days I wished I had it.  Our backyard gets the afternoon sun and our family room, kitchen and bedroom get so hot.  I barbequed , then we took our meal  to the hill where it was cool with a little breeze.  Grilled chicken and roasted vegetables.  Yum, right?

Okay, back to the project of the day.  A few garage sales ago I found a pair of candle holders for a couple of dollars, but I wasn’t too crazy about the color.  It was a dark greenish black.  Do you know what I mean?  I spray painted them with Rustoleum gray, but that didn’t float my boat.  They felt bland and boring.  Thank goodness anything cam be changed with a little paint more than once!  And that’s what I did. I have to admit though, I didn’t have any Rustoleum so I grabbed a can Ace’s metallic brand.  It’s okay for now.

I’m sure the location will change, but for now I added them to my entry way table.

Have you painted anything lately, only to change your mind?
