Sally's Menorah Makeover

My Mom found this menorah while perusing her local thrift store, once she laid eyes on it she knew that she wouldn't be leaving the store without it.

The can of spray paint set me back $4 and the menorah came in at $5, thanks again, Mom!
I love how it turned out and can't wait for Hanukkah, it'll be here before we know it!
