january is all about simplifying around here. organizing, cleaning and removing the excess are top priorities for this month.
so while some of you may argue that this centerpiece/display is a bit ‘cluttered’, i’m loving the look!
you remember my glass christmas ornament centerpiece from december? for those of you that are new followers to inspiredbycharm click here to check it out.
but i started with this mess of seemingly ugly candlesticks.
they all got a coat of white primer, then a coat of white lacquer spray paint. (isn’t spray paint the best!?)
i had some white and green taper and beeswax candles on hand. i also picked up a few more at goodwill and walmart.
and this is what i came up with …
i’ve been loving the look of candlesticks recently and with several on hand the investment of a few more was under five dollars.
the varying shades of green match my new tablecloth (which i showed you yesterday) perfectly. it also works really nicely with my winter display i showed you last week. and the wood ‘thing’ underneath is a vintage washing machine agitator i scored at an antique shop a couple years ago.
ahhh. fresh. clean. beautiful. just what the new year ordered. can you imagine what this thing would look like with all the candles lit? i’ll be sure to take a picture if i decide to light them.
i’m also linking this up to the csi project challenge of the week which happens to be white.
really beautiful inspiration over there so check it out. there is something so refreshing and clean about white in january. i’m loving it! great challenge for the first week of the new year!
