How to Makeover Old Candlesticks




Whether you have a tired pair of candlesticks that have seen better days or you’ve grabbed that thrifty find and need inspiration, now’s the time to get creative and transform them with a whole new look!


What you will need:


Rust-Oleum Metallic spray paint

Rust-Oleum Surface Primer (where necessary)

Newspaper/ Dust sheets



Move the object(s) to be painted to a well-ventilated area and place on top of newspaper or a dust sheet. Protect the surrounding area with additional dust sheets or newspaper.

Ensure surfaces to be painted are free from loose paint, rust, wax, oil and grease. Previously painted surfaces should be abraded to provide a key. Unless you are painting with Rust-Oleum Universal spray paint bare wood and metal should be primed with Rust-Oleum Surface Primer.

Using your selected product / colour hold the can approximately 30cm from the surface of the object(s) and spray in a steady back and forth motion, slightly overlapping with each stroke. For best results whilst spraying keep the can the same distance from the surface and keep the can in motion. Apply several light coats a few minutes apart.
