Dilemma Almost Solved

A few weeks ago I posted this dilemma:
My candle holder with it's broken candles and kind of boring color!
************************
Then I shared a little bit of vinyl craftiness with the addition of this {oh so cute} number 6. I obviously painted the candle holder too. This is Krylon Bahama Sea spraypaint, which I am currently in love with:)Vinyl 6 I finally found the solution to the broken candles....which I think may have been suggested by a reader on my first dilemma post. I got a pack of six little terra cotta pots at Hobby Lobby. They were marked $2.27 and they were on sale for 50% off...so I got all six of them for a little over a dollar! As cute as they are, the color is just too close to the Sherwin Williams Baked Clay that is on the walls in my living room. So, I got out my trusty black spray paint and gave all six pots a good coating.
I think it turned out really great, and it looks completely different than it did when I started! Now, I am planning to melt down a few old candles to make the pots candles, because I know it will be almost impossible to find some that fit in the pots perfectly.
****************************
We've also been busy outside. Here's a little hint.... I'll share more next week:) I hope you have a SUPER weekend!

Love the paint. I've called Ace, Home Depot, Lowes, and Walmart, and nobody has this color, or even another one I really like. Where did you get your Krylon paint?

Darling site!

RJ @ A Life Designed said...

What a great transformation! I love the colour, and the little terra cotta pots are just genius!

Baye said...

What a great idea! I confess to being a scented candle fanatic and to to raiding my husband's workshop. This project WILL happen. I bought some of those tiny pots a few years ago. They are so cute. I put tiny flowers in mine and lined them up on a bathroom shelf. Now I wish I had bought more.

Thanks for sharing.

Kelli said...

Now that is very cute. I love the pots and the little number.
