My First DIY...

Keeping in mind the festive air around, I recently attempted my first DIY project. I know its not much, when I compare it to all the stuff you talented people create in blogland. However, I am new at this, and have taken my first baby step into the world of spray painting:-) I have had these wooden candlestands at home for a while now. I wanted to try and give it a new look. A can of spray paint, a sunny day, and a few coats of paint later I was done!!!! I love this deep red/burgandy color and my old candles go perfectly with them. So, what do you think? A new addition to my fall, Diwali and Christmas decor??



The before and after......
