Thrift Store Find!

I'm new to "thrifting" thanks to all of you and lucky for me there are quite a few in my area...who new? So when the weather gets too cold for my beloved flea market that is where you will find me. Found this unique candle sconce and I just loved the glass balls and all the sparkling prisms and crystals.The color, not so much.
 I removed all the glitzy stuff w/ needle nose pliers and was pleasantly surprised to find the whole entire thing was held together with one long screw, yay me!! No taping off required. Sprayed it with Krylon's Aqua and glazed it with a mix of Delta's Prussian Blue and Charcoal Gray. Happy I remembered the before pics because I never would have been able to put this back together again. I've put this up for sale :( on my web site:
