I bought this flowered shaped brass candleholder while thrifting a few years ago.  Though I like the shape, it felt dull and lifeless.  Isn’t a flower supposed to be full of life??  Anyhoot, I painted the inside of the large petals this fun tangerine hue.  It’s now a bold and modern accessories for my living room!

What do you think?

Love it! I wish I had the vision to take some plain and make it something amazing!

I think it came out great! I am all about adding a little paint to something to make it current.
I recently painted a little teak tray and I think it turned out well. You can see it here:

Super cool! I bet that orange takes it to a whole new level with a candle inside.
