the one with ORB

I've heard of the wonders of ORB (Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint by Rustoleum). And I've been dying to find something to paint with it. I finally got my chance a couple weeks ago with a small project!

Our sweet friends, the Thompsons, had some candlesticks that Rob was trying to sell for them on CraigsList. We couldn't find the right buyer so I decided to try and give them a fresh look and use them outside on our deck.
Here they are before:

And here they are after!
Here's a closeup so you can see the pretty bronze color (they look black in the picture above). 

They look so awesome on our deck under the pergola! (Pictures coming next week!)


  1. You are the queen of crafts! Love them! We have used that spray alot with our home. EZ replaced all the hinges, knobs and light fixtures with ORB. Our dining room chandelier was this awful verdigris, we sprayed it and now I LOVE IT! Amazing what you can do with that paint...

  2. Linda - You need to post pictures of your ORB crafts! I've been wondering how a chandelier would look... I am thinking of spraying our fan and I just can't decide! I'd love to see pictures of what you've done!
