Shabby French Candle Holder

                                           


I found this pastry server, well at least that's what I think it is, at the flea market. It was a silver toned metal (naturally forgot to take the before pic...hate when I do that!) and I sprayed it with white primer then white paint. It came with a glass insert that I decided to mosaic in the shabby chic style. I just love that look! So girly! When I was finished I placed it back in the filigree base and decided white wasn't cuttin' it so I decided on pink instead. I girlied it up a little more with pretty, french cut crystals and little iridescent beads I found at Michaels. I think this would look great with candles on it or a petite pink rose bush.

Hi, I just found your blog at My Romantic Home. I love your mozaic work, they are all beautifully done. Is there any chance you would post a tutorial on how to do mosaics for those of us that have never tried this? I am curious how you cut the center of the plates so round without cracking them? I often see beautiful flea market dishes that don't come in a set and would like to display the designs without having a bunch of mismatched china laying around. Thanks , Rhianna

It's so beautiful! I love shabby chic and I love china and mosaics. I'm so glad that I found your blog. I sell china where I would and I have been saving broken pieces of it since I started working in the china department 5 years ago. I keep saying that 'one day' I'm going to learn how to do what you do. Thanks for the inspiration!
