Pretty in Pink - Before and After

I am really into this refinishing, 'upcycling' thing these days!  Look what I found at our local thrift store recently to use for my do overs:

A nice enough candle  screen in a dark bronze color 

 Transformed into a sweet victoria looking screen

I know it is meant for candles, but I think you could change it up and add glittered fruit

Even some white flowers for a wedding would be pretty

A average gold ceramic cherub

Becomes a sweet addition to a little girls room, a baby shower decoration or girls event

A plain candle holder in white

Becomes a delicate display piece

The coup de grace!

What is this thing?  Yes that is "air fern" in there!

Remove icky flowers and air fern and put in the trash, clean in a sink of soapy water.  Oh I see!

 Not too bad of a cage, but a bit boring..

Now a sweet victorian addition to a corner or table top!

I wonder what other things I can paint pink?  Hmmmmmm...

My fave is the candle holder.
Can it be hung on a wall?
You have better thrift stores than I do :)

Thank you all for the sweet comments! Sue, the candle screen probably could be hung on a wall, the sides fold flat. I bet that would look pretty too!
