I am so excited about this project! Mainly because it didn't cost me a thing! Woo hoo!
I was searching Pottery Barn the other day and came across these Acanthus Pillar Holders. I just LOVED them and decided I needed some for my master bedroom!
I actually lucked out and had some wooden candlesticks around the house (left over from our wedding). I purchased them at Garden Ridge a few years ago. The tag on the bottom says $14.99, but I think they were on sale when I bought them.
I almost forgot to take a before pic, so here they are about to be spray painted!
I spray painted them with Rustoleum Heirloom White from Home Depot.
I waited about 15 minutes and took some 80 grit sandpaper to them! The paint was dry to the touch, but I think it helped that it wasn't totally dry all the way through.
