I have been working on creating the perfect centerpiece for my wedding, I made a previous post about using candelabra's to cut floral costs for the reception. So.... in the spirit of DIY, I ordered this candelabra from Save On Crafts (2 for $49 each) to see if I could use it to create a beautiful sample centerpiece....
Now, it was pretty in white but since my color scheme is Blush, Champagne and Gold I decided to make it gold! I went to Micheal's and purchased an Antique Gold Metallic Finish spray paint (see below) and went to work!
I used a base primer and then applied the gold spray paint, check out the before and after pictures below
And these are the candelabras all dressed up in 2 sample centerpiece's I put together!
As you can see, you can create amazing looking centerpieces on a budget, I cut back costs by buying a cheaper white candelabra and staining it to the color I wanted (gold ) which would have been a lot pricier. But I still get the desired gold effect! Now doesn't that tickle your DIY senses.
