On one of my recent trips to Goodwill, I found these lovely red candlesticks! The coloring on the exterior had lots of scratches and chips of the clearish paint missing. After much brainstorming on how to recon these into a fabulous new addition to our new apartment, this is what I have come up with!

I'd llllooooovvee to hear what you think! Any suggestions and comments are always welcome!









Ill have to add some action shots soon as I am hoping that when the lights are dim (and there are actually candles being used in them) that I will get some nice reflections from all the glass!

Looks great! The glass looks like crystal waves. And it also doubles as an improvised weapon! =D
