Painted Wooden Candlesticks

I recently shared an easy mirror update inspired by a wood + turquoise bowl…

inspiration:

H&M turquoise and wood bowl

mirror update:

One mirror, four ways at diyshowoff.com

Then I spied a set of three {Ty Pennington Style…love his style, don’t you?} candlesticks for $4.99 at the thrift store and couldn’t resist creating a wood + turquoise collection.

Materials:

  • Wooden candlesticks
  • FrogTape®
  • Paint (Maison Blanche Furniture Paint, color is “colette”.)

What I did:

I simply wrapped the FrogTape® around my candlesticks to create an angled design.

Using my thumbnail, I burnished the edges of the FrogTape.

Then simply applied two coats of paint with a foam brush.

While the paint was still wet, I carefully pulled away the FrogTape to reveal a crisp, straight, clean paint line.

 The design varies depending on which side faces out.

Now they’re a one of a kind Ty Pennington/DIYShowOff style! Working with him and he isn’t even aware.  Maybe it’s for the best as he may not be flattered that I altered his design. 😉

Then let them dry. Add candles and display! So cute! West Elm log vase is from my secret Santa…love it!
