~ A Little Spray Paint ~

I found this candle holder some time ago...can't even remember where...although the sticker was still on it and revealed it was $1.00.  I can deal with that!  Perhaps a lot of you would have left it this shabby white but I have to have color.  :-)  I did prime it and then put a clear sealer on when finished.  Hopefully, that will help since it will live outside.

 
I plan to use it on my patio and chose a color that is as close to turquoise as I could find ~ it's Rustoleum Satin Lagoon.


One more pic with a candle although I'm going for a lemon  yellow candle for the finale`.


The pillow is new and staying inside...just a bit of a prop even though the tones are not quite the same color family.  More on the pillow later!
I have a few other things to spray paint for the patio...it's just been too windy here to do very much. It's going to be full of color when I'm finished ~ :-) 

I'm linking up with Thrifty Decor Chick for her Spray Paint Party!  Stop by and see all the talent shared there.

It is beautiful....your patio will be great....can't wait to see more.
It's been so windy, not good for spray painting at all. It's not supposed to be windy today, I'm looking forward to this day.....

Fun color! I love bright color outside. My adironaks are turquoise, the flowers are always in "hot" colors and the planters tend to be pretty vibrant. It makes me feel more like I'm in Key West or somewhere tropical instead of in the middle of a cornfield!

Ha, I linked my candlestick makeover using this same paint color. Took awhile to grow on me, but I love it now.

I am very fond of the turquoise color you chose for the candlestick. Just recently I read that shades of turquoise will be "the color" for fall. And, I am loving your silk pillow.......just so beatiful. Thanks for becoming one of my followers. I noticed that we are nearly "neighbors".
