Over the course of our marriage, I have decorated our bathrooms many different ways. A frog bathroom, a princess bathroom, and an all blue bathroom. I have changed it up so many times because I never found something that I really loved. Just recently I decided to change up our bathroom upstairs and I wanted to go for a more classic look. I came up with this candelabra for some of our most used items and I absolutely love it. It completes the look of the bathroom and looks really nice and I didn’t have to spend a lot of money on it.
You will need:
- a candelabra
- enough jars for every pedestal
- oil rubbed bronze spray paint
- things to fill your jar
I began scouring the thrift stores around me for a piece meant for many candles. I found a few I liked, but this one really spoke to me. I brought it home and cleaned it up. I decided I liked the brown enough to not spray paint it, but I would have thrown on a coat of Oil Rubbed Bronze spray painted if it had needed it.
The first thing you need to do is bend the spokes meant to hold the candle. Using a pair of pliers, bend them against the metal of the candelabra, this will give you a flat surface to glue your jars.
Then you need to decide what kind of container works best for your particular piece. I tried out a bunch of different options until I found one I loved.
Hot glue a knob on top of your lid and then spray pain the lid with oil rubbed bronze spray paint, or whatever color you need it to be to match your piece.
Fill your jars with your bathroom essentials. I decided I wanted to go with an all white theme in the jars, so I filled them with cotton swabs, make up sponges, bars of white soap, epsom salt and cotton balls.
Hot glue the bottom of your jars to the candelabra and then add it to your bathroom for a fantastic statement piece.
Along with this gorgeous statement piece and a new dandelion painting, I am finally in love with my bathroom decor.
