In there current state, I can't say I really like them but who couldn't use another candle holder, right?!
So, I painted a light coat of Annie Sloan's Old White, followed up by a wash with some gray latex paint I had around. I wish I would have taken a picture at this stage because with the gray wash, it looked pretty dull and cold. So here is when the wax entered. Every time I've used the wax, I have used the wax brush and can't achieve a smooth finish. This time I just went with a good old rag. I applied the clear wax followed directly with the dark wax. This gave it so much more character, warmth, and depth. Just look at it.

A lot different from what it started out as, uh? I'm sharing this over at:
