These candlesticks are a perfect example of how painting something can make such a transformation! Remember that teal table? I used some of the leftover paint that I had from that, and when the paint was dry I rubbed specific areas with sandpaper.

I had a great year teaching elementary art- but am off to teach high school again next year and am pretty excited for what lies ahead. Here's a few images I took while wrapping up this year!

When I first laid eyes on this table, I knew it had potential. With the ornate detail, I knew that with the right paint color this table could truly have a transformation. My grandmother actually gave me this table, and YES.. she knew I had the intention of painting it!
|What it was BEFORE....|
|I mixed up my own teal/turquoise color and painted the inset of the table navy.|
|And then sanded it in strategic areas once it was dry to give a slightly distressed look...|
