I found this candle holder at the Salvation Army Thrift Store (yay send kids to camp, shop at the Sally Ann!) and it reminded me of the elephant side tables that I love...so for 3 bucks I bought it, took it home and spray painted it.
it started out as a dirty gray colour
so first I white-washed it so that if my spray paint missed a spot in all those tiny crevasses, it was show as white and not gray.
then I spray painted it a baby blue (a little lighter than shown in this photo)
