Painted Pretty; Candle Holder Makeover

I just wanted to share another small painting project that I finished recently. I purchased this large candle holder because I knew it would be a perfect item to 'shabby' up. It has great architectural details that caught my eye.

After a few layers of acrylic craft paint, I 'chippied' it up slightly so it would look older. I also added two floral decals to the top, then sealed them. I am very happy with how it came out and am planning to list this pretty one of a kind piece in my store...hopefully soon!

I haven't had much time to list items in my store due to the kids being home all week on vacation. I hope to add at least a few things this week and lots of new pretties threw next week. Please visit me soon and check them out =O)
