Outdated / Updated big ole seahorse candleholder

Found this BIG seahorse candle holder at GW last week.  It’s almost 2 feet tall!  Was pondering attempting to turn it into a lamp

But I really needed to repaint it FIRST to be sure it would turn out good enough to be made into a lamp.  First a good couple of coats of flat black spray paint.

Then I sponge painted it with tan, and decided I didn’t want to make it into a lamp.  Mostly because I didn’t want to have to go hunting for a lamp SHADE!  Found a big wood charger plate in my stash and turned it into a little TABLE or plant stand instead.

After painting the plate to match the base, I glued them together with e6000.

Perfect little accent table for displaying a few of your favorite collectibles; or setting your drink and snack on!

This piece will be going to my booth at Stars in the very near future.

  2. I love it! You did a great job in making ugly duckling ( so to speak!) into a lovely piece.

  3. […] And now that is has been determined that the blue color POPS more, I’m debating repainting this sea-horse table I recently posted over on my  ‘trash 2 treasure’ blog.  […]
