Tarnished Silver Re-do

I just love it when I find these tarnished candlelabras.  They are ususally brass, ewww!; or tarnished silver that will not come clean no matter how much you scrub or polish.
So, I just slap on the paint and look what happens.

I really need to find some more crystals for this one so, I'm not done yet.  Hope you like it now, and wait until you see it later.  Such beautiful shabbiness......

  Oh, by the way, I'm going to West Virginia to see my sister
and her first newborn Granddaughter, Peyton.  So expect to see
lots of photos when I get back.  We are going to do some serious shopping!!!!!!!!

A little bit of spray paint works miracles! Hope you have a great visit with your sis.
