Do you love quick DIY decor accessories? Me too! Check out how I transformed a pair of boring brown candlesticks into these stylish 'Treasure Blue' Chalky Finish Painted Candle Holders!

I love to layer my tables, mantel and bookshelves with lots of accessories to add color and pattern to my home.  However home decor accessories can be really expensive...so I love to DIY mine whenever I can!

I scored these candlesticks at Goodwill recently - I loved the size and the shape...loved that they will hold pillar candles too, but didn't love the brown color!

I gave them a face lift with a gorgeous aqua/teal blue paint called 'Treasure', perfectly named because they are my treasure now! Here's how I transformed them!

Instructions:

This really is the easiest DIY - all it takes is adding two coats of Chalky Finish paint , letting each coat dry completely. I added a final coat of clear wax. That's it! No sanding, no prepping required with Chalky Finish paint!
