This is my thrift store candlestick makeover tutorial.

I was out thrift shopping last week, and I saw two candlesticks that were the shape of the ones in the store. They were about $1 each. They were hideous, but that does not matter because I am going to paint them. Also, it doesn’t matter if they are not wood like the ones in the store because after you chalk paint the candlesticks, they will look like wood.
I had purchased some beautiful and old earrings and pendants earlier because I am always wanting to put bling on things to dress it up. It’s called Champagne taste on a thrift store budget!
I painted the candlesticks with two coats of Waverly Chalk Paint and the color was called Pool. Distress the candlesticks with a 220 sanding block. They looked similar to the ones in the store but I decided to put some bling on the candlesticks.
I used hot glue to attach the jewelry to the candlesticks.
I think they turned out beautiful! This thrift store candlestick makeover was super easy, super cheap, and I have a pair of candlesticks that you will not find anywhere else.
