I’ve had this candlestick in my Etsy shop for a few months now.
I figured I’d give it a go “as is” and if there was no interest I’d give it a transformation. Since I took most of my Etsy stuff with me to the holiday market, I figured it was time to give it a makeover. Using my sample pot of Antoinette chalk paint, I gave it one coat.
Then I took some Antique Gold Rub n Buff, and a small brush, and went over the details with it.
Much more French looking, I think! The Rub n Buff gives it a gilded look and brings out the details beautifully, where before you couldn’t really appreciate them.
