I recently redid our guest room on a very modest budget. I was able to keep the cost under $500 by buying the furniture on Craiglists, waiting for wall paint to go on sale and purchasing drapes at IKEA. Still, all these things put a big dent in my budget. When it came time for pretty little extras I really had to put on my thinking cap.
This is how the high ledge above my closet now looks.
Can you believe these are the same candlesticks? Tuscan is over for me so I didn’t hesitate to grab a can of white spray paint.
I then grabbed my handy dandy tube of silver Rub and Buff. With Rub and Buff a little goes a long way. I find that using my fingers works the best to add shine exactly where I want it.
I searched for silver candles for 2 weeks to no avail. I finally went to the Dollar Tree and selected three white candles and proceeded to cover them in a simple sheet of scrapbook paper.
Right next to the candles I placed a box of greenery.
Thank goodness I still had almost an entire tube of Rub and Buff left. The white porcelain busts are of a boy and girl. They were found at Goodwill for $3.00.
