Have you ever purchased anything that you intended to use for a project and then just let it sit around in your garage taking up valuable space? Story of my life…
Like these cheap candelabras that I just had to have.
I’d like to say that I purchased them with Halloween in mind, but that would be a lie. I honestly had no good reason for buying them, and they taunted me for a long time from their perch in the garage. My stroke of genius was a total fluke. I just happened to pull out all my fall decorations and place a skull right night to them. Then it just clicked. All they needed was a good coat of paint.
So I dismantled them and placed them in a cardboard box.
I sprayed them with a layer of shiny black paint.
Some candles made them the perfect addition to my front porch.
I realize they will still take up valuable space in my garage, but I can stomach that fact so much easier when it involves Halloween. Best. Holiday. Ever.
