spray painted candle holders

Truth be told, I don't have a ton of experience with spray painting.  I'm more of a brush and paint kinda gal.  However, I decided to give the old can of paint a try.

I've been looking for a nice way to display some of the Flower Pomanders that I made a few weeks ago.  After perusing through the isles of Ikea I found some fairly inexpensive block candles holders.  I liked the curves, they were just too dark for what I was looking for:
This is actually the larger size, I painted the smaller version
I purchased a can of regular old white spray paint and got to work.  I didn't sand or prime or anything, it took about 4 coats of paint for me to achieve the look I was going for.  To be honest, you can't even tell they were dark brown before!  I love the little bit of extra oomph they give my pomanders!  Check it out!
B and I went out with his sister yesterday to see the movie Limitless, I actually really ended up enjoying it!  We then went out to a nice restaurant (courtesy of a gift card from the parents of one of his wrestlers) and had the most amazing belly expanding meal.

Today was filled with watching the kids in the Nursery at church, hanging out at home, and now catching up on school work and blog related things.  Hope everyone is enjoying their first official day of Spring!  Love to all!
