Candlesticks create a warm focal point wherever they reside. Make them your own with this easy paint project “how-to”!
Candlesticks – mismatched ok
Paint- we used Hot and Spicy T17-18
Spray primer- we used Kilz Odorless
Detail brush
Mini roller
Step 1: Gather old or mismatched candlesticks
Color will be the unifying component in this project, making it ideal for candlesticks that have lost their partner or are different shapes, materials (no glass) and sizes.
Step 2: Prime candlesticks
For surfaces that haven’t already been painted, it’s always a good idea to prime first.  Priming will create a solid and even surface for the paint to adhere to. Shake your can of spray primer and apply to candlesticks. Allow to dry.

Step 3: Paint candlesticks
Paint your candlesticks in your selected color.  Use your detail brush to apply paint in areas the roller can’t reach.  Allow to dry.  Apply a second coat if necessary/desired.
