I bought this candle holder for $2.00 years ago. I had sprayed it with a textured paint for reason or another. Since I had changed the colour of my decor years ago, it had been hiding in a box in our storage room. I decided I either needed to do something with it or give it away. I don't particularly like the texture but since I was pressed for time, I decided I could live with it. I spray painted it black and bought a bag of polished stones from the dollar store.
