Candle Sconce Makeover

I found a set of candle sconces recently at a 2nd hand store.  They were a little more than what I wanted to spend on them but I loved the shape of these so I splurged a little.   hehe...  Here is a before photo:
Here they are after I sanded them down, painted them, resanded and aged them up.  I also added a grubby candle to each one that I made.

I was really happy with how they turned out.. What do ya think?
Now.... I am not sure if I want to keep them or sell them..hehe..

Have a wonderful weekend! Tina
