Lamp post candle holder "make over"

Hello friends! I found this adorable little lamp post candle holder while I was out thrifting this past weekend.   I thought it was so cute and unusual AND would be a perfect wedding decoration.. but I was not fond of the dark wood.  So I brought it home --painted it white, glazed it with crackle paint, added another coat of white, sanded the edges to give it that "well worn" look.. and I loved the results!  With a little tulle bow added -- it will be perfect for the wedding!

    1. I liked the darker too -- but you know I am thinking "all white" these days.
