Yard Sale Rescue

We had a yard sale over the weekend and at the end of it, we still had these candle holders:

They had been in a dresser for years, at least 5 years, the 2 tone metal didn't match any of our decor and I thought they might get a few bucks towards the kitchen project.

I was wrong... but that caused me to give them a second look and realize that with a coat of spray paint.

They could turn into this:

They really work in our guest bedroom now, and it didn't cost a thing!


  1. Great job! It pays to re-think things sometimes!

  2. They turned out cute and gave that wall some pop! Good catch and fixup.

  3. Smart! They look great in the new room. And I love the mirror!!

  4. You go girl! Great save... Nicely done.

    Thanks for joining Get Your Craft on Thursday! Please join me next week for another great party!

  5. Sometimes its harder to imagine our own possessions being transformed ..and easier to imagine others!! Why is that? Good thing you gave them a second chance because they look great

    Stop by Pandora's Box to enter a giveaway! ~patti~

  6. Maggie, they look great! It's lucky they didn't sell!

    Thanks for linking up to Make it Yours Day! Have a great weekend!
