Trash to Treasure: Upcycled Old Candle Sconces

Let’s face it, our styles change over time. I’ve had these old sconces since college, and I found them tucked away in the back of a cabinet. I liked the pattern, but wanted to revamp them a little and decided to go bold and paint them turquoise to give them more life. I used two coats of an acrylic paint, and glazed it with 3 coats of  triple-thick crystal clear spray paint.

This cost less than $10 to for this DIY wall art, with materials left over for another project, and and I have turned trash to treasure!
