Crate&Barrel and Blue Candlesticks…
I hope everyone is having a good weekend! I attempted to blog a bit last night but I fell asleep with the computer on my lap; it’s been a long week!
So feeling much more rested this morning I headed over to Crate&Barrel for a little inspiration and as always, it didn’t disappoint…see how happy I look! : )
One of the things I loved the most was all the blue in Crate&Barrel’s Spring collection. From patio furniture to cookware it was everywhere and although I would have loved to buy it all, I left with $6 worth of Spring cupcake wrappers and decided to try and recreate the look on my own.
I had a set of cheap candlesticks that I picked up from a thrift shop for $2.99 a piece. They’re a sturdy metal and have, as I’ve heard it referred to on many a design show, “good bones.” They seemed like the perfect thing to bring all that pretty blue into my house!
I would add in the step by step here but all that it really involved was picking up a spray paint suitable for metal in a color inspired by my trip to Crate&Barrel. That’s what I did and here’s what I ended up with!
It’s amazing what a little paint can do, right?
Using spray paint is a really cheap way to bring new life to old pieces. Get a little color inspiration; find out what’s trendy and if the color fits your personal taste use it to update a few things around your house!
