Spray Painted Candle Holder

A couple of summers ago, I received a cute outdoor candle holder for my birthday.  But as you can see, two years later it wasn't looking so hot anymore:


What's a girl to do? Why, spray paint of course!  I picked up a can of Valspar spray paint in "Exotic Sea" turquoise.

Since this candle holder is for the outdoors I wasn't afraid to be a little playful and paint it a bright, fun color.


And I'm glad I picked a punchy color because it looks nice and cheery now.


The candle holder is really made to go around a patio table umbrella, but since I have an offset umbrella, I'm using it as a centerpiece on my gazebo coffee table (that I spray painted too).


I'm still decorating my outdoor gazebo, but this candle holder is a nice fun addition.
