Thrifty Nifty Thursdays

So a girlfriend and I stopped in our local 
Habitat for Humanity and found this beauty....

After dusting off this beauty's dust from the old owner and
pushing out of my mind what dust is. 
I then covered the candle sticks with paper towels 
held it around with a strip of tape and slid them down into the shaft so the would stay white during the painting.
A few high end brands that I've seen have the candle sticks the same as the chandelier, 
but I wanted to try and leave it white because I 
figured with the contrast it would make the "not so white"
candle sticks "pop".
And you only have one shot on that decision right!

 After a little coat (well maybe 1 and a dusting) of 

Total cost:
thrift store chandelier $45
2 cans spray paint $3.48 each
 (home depot was the cheapest)
Grand total of $52
