5. Paint it black! Once it dried I cut a hole into the top to put my candle through. The candles were choir lights for children that my church was throwing away. I got lucky~
6. Brown, yellow, and a little black partly mixed paint. (By partly mixed, I mean, donít mix it all into one solid color) Use that to dirty up age the windows around the candles by dabbing it on with a wadded paper towel. I also dabbed it around the body of the post to dirty it up.
7. Finally I sprayed it down with a clear coat seal. This should help protect it from weather (and as a plus- it fogged up the windows and aged it even more. Yay!)
I'll post some better pics outside once it stops raining.
