Painted Candlestick Holder

This is a project that's been a longtime coming.
I have wanted to paint this candlestick holder since I bought it over a year ago. It's just been sitting on my kitchen counter looking longingly at me (or maybe I've been looking longingly at it).

So I finally sat down and painted it.
Pretty, huh? How about that color?
This is how it started out. It only cost me a dollar at a yard sale.
I started by giving it two coats of metal primer.

Then I painted it in eggshell (the tip is what it looked like before the glaze).
I gave it two coats,

 then I covered it with a glaze which I made by watering down brown paint.
I painted a small area, then wiped off the extra glaze with a paper towel.

I think it brings out the detail.

I'm super happy with how it turned out.
Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.
