Well I took my own advice from about a month back and went thrift shopping. It was good and bad. Good because I found a lot of stuff I liked, bad because I bought a lot of stuff I didn’t really need. But isn’t that kind of what always happens, no matter what you are shopping for.
Well I found a treasure trove. I love Halloween style, decorative candle sticks, Victorian sconces, gothic deco, etc. and OMG I found some!!!
There were also these candle stick holders that I was looking at for A LONG time, but didn’t get, because I had to give myself a little reality check. I already had enough in the cart that I didn’t “need” and sconces that were heavy as all get out and 3M hooks wouldn’t be able to support at my apartment. They are for a future house that I can put nails in the wall. They are like 5 pounds each!!!!
Other than washing everything, there was only one item that I wanted to actually do some work to. That would be the three pronged candle holder.
I love candelabra like things like this!!! Think Phantom of the Opera!! I mostly just wanted to paint this black to make it uniform in color and match most of my stuff.
This, with the help of the other glass items I bought and a dish my mother bought at a garage sale for me, I decorated my new desk!!!
