This was a really simple project. I had found and purchased a light fixture at an estate sale with beautiful patina. The distressed teal color is gorgeous and the rusty gold that showed through complimented the piece.
With much deliberation and tons of coffee I had decided to do something easy with it and turn it into a candle holder.
First you have to take all the guts out (wiring, sockets) then trace a piece of wood that would fit the circumference of the fixture then stain.
I love how it turned out. I'll probably keep an eye out for more light fixtures like these.
