I know you're wondering what these two things have in common. Let me show you...
Yep, these two candlestick holders jumped off the Goodwill rack at me for a whoppin' 99 cents each! And they had my grandmother's name, Joy, not to mention they're Christmas-y. Just perfect for a grandma gift.
But the ugly brass...oh, the brass. So I set to work spray painting those bad boys and I am pleased with the result.
Red always makes things better :)
