Thrifty find Repurposed! when you look at a spring form cake pan what do you see??? 
Since I'm not really a baker I see something totally differnt than most...
I snagged up the worn out spring form pans for a cool $4 at a yardsale knowing exactly what I was going to do.
I know some of you have seen these before...but I took mine a step further as I tend do.  I not only painted the candlesticks but I gave the worn out pans a thrifty makeover using alcohol inks.
I first Painted the pans a black/silverish color with alcohol inks...but found it was too dark so I went back over with the reds, oranges, touch of black and copper metallic to give me a copper look.
I also painted the candlesticks a greenish/turquoise color (sorry I forgot to take pics of some of the painting steps, I was engrossed in the moment) Then dry brushed a copper glaze paint. LOVE!
On the spring latches I used the alcohol inks in the blue shades to create the same color as my candlesticks. And I aslo painted the inside of the pans the same as the latches for interest.
Use E6000 to glue the candlesticks to the pans...
Now it's ready for my paints...
Love the contrast between the copper look and the turquoise!
No it's not crooked...I tilted my camera on not the best! (sorry for the shadows)
But I just love, love, love how it turned out and I can't wait to put it in my new art studio (hopefully that will be soon).
So just remember....when thrifting or browsing yardsales try to see things in a differnt way, they just may turn out to be useful!
Happy Pickin'
