Covered In Gold
Hey readers it’s Tammy from Rustic Orchard Home. Check out these ’90s candlesticks that got a makeover Covered In Gold! The candlesticks I’m using for today’s post are from back in the ’90s. I found them while shopping in my attic storage space and thought they would be a great candidate for a little updating. You probably have a set hiding in your attic too. Go grab them and let me show you how to transform them into upcycled candlesticks you’ll be proud to display in your home.
- White Lightening
- Gold Gilding Wax
- We recommend DBP Artist Brushes
Step 1: Cleaning!
Before going on the upcycling, I gave both candlesticks a good cleaning with White Lightening from Dixie Belle. It gets rid of all the grime creating the perfect surface for crafting.
Step 2: Covered In Gold
After they were nicely cleaned and dried, it was time to get out some Gold Gilding Wax. I simply used my finger to rub the Gilding Wax onto the surface of the candlesticks.
For the base, I wanted to leave some of the black showing!
I worked in a circular motion, blending as I went. Here, I used a small brush to get in the crease and then smoothed the rest with the brush as well.
And here’s what I ended up creating! This set looks good in a moody and bright bathroom setting.
