Can you paint decorations?

I get asked a lot of questions about painting. One I hear often is "What can you paint?" Good news friends, you can paint just about anything!

The list goes on and on..
I found the above candlesticks at Goodwill. They were a bright gold. I wiped them down with some vinegar (to get them really clean and dust free), primed them with some Kilz primer and spray painted white. Then I just took some sand paper to the details. That's it!


  1. Oh gosh girlie, I hear ya! I paint everything, lol! I think that is why I bargain shop, so then if I do ruin biggie!

    1. I agree 100%!!!! If you don't like it, paint it again! LOL

  2. You are one amazing girl!! I have had a blast seeing all the fun things you have done! Next time you are down in this neck of the woods we will have to get all the kiddos together. Kristin wanted to this last time, but it just didn't work out. Keep up the good work! Your work looks great!

  3. I love changing things with paint! These candle sticks are beautiful! I also wanted to let you know I'm hosting my first giveaway...I'd love you to stop by & enter to win a My Memories digital scrapbooking software. Thanks!
