So… I moved into a brand new condo… It already had a shiplap wall that become distressed in a way that I liked. However a candlestick that I had was nearly equal to the wall. While I still wanted a distressed look at the candlestick… I desired more of a differentiation among the wall and the decor.
Part of the candlestick and the wall. (Sorry, handiest p.C I had.)
I had plenty of (free!) paint leftover from painting the mantel in this project…
So, I used it — plus! A tie-in to the mantel coloration = bonus!
The color of the paint (satin finish) changed into Valspar "Twinkle-Twinkle" …Their colour of the 12 months!
First I painted the candlestick — throughout.
Since I became going to distress it, I turned into no longer too cautious with the paint application (…Had not anything to do with the alcohol within the history! LOL)
Then I used a slicing from cotton flannel pj’s to wipe off paint… Letting some stay inside the knots and crevices.
Here’s the finished candlestick. (My ninety four 12 months old dad would quip that it still needs a lot of paint! LOL)
I definitely just like the new contrast of wall/candlestick.
FYI: the base of the candle changed into a bit extensive for the top of candlestick… So I simply took a vegetable peeler and pared it off a chunk! – Win.
