~French Candlesticks & Dried Flowers~

I wanted to do a project with dried flowers, so I went shopping to find just the right piece.
I found these candlesticks at 
HomeGoods but didn't like the color.
So out came the creme color paint .
I really like how they turned out with a vintage look to them. 
I've been collecting flowers
 for a project, so it was perfect.
I used the French candles I 
 made for the vignette.
I added some bling to my statue.
Putting different color flowers around the candles make them look so Romantic...

  23. Very beautiful - I love how this turned out. I found you on The Shabby Nest. I submitted a project there as well - an Elegant Powder Room - I am a few spots away from you on that link.

    Love how you combined the flowers and the lovely candles (love them) and the revamped candlesticks.

  24. Let me just say, fantastic...
    I do have to remember items can be painted. I never seem to remember this until I see it done like this. The items I have passed up due to not liking the color, etc.
    I wanted to thank you for stopping by my pincushion blog post.
    Have a sunshine week.
