Candlestick Collection

Since today was my day off and it was raining, I thought it would be the perfect day to hit up some antique shops. I was in search of old candlesticks and vases that I could re-finish or polish for decorations. Needless to say, I hit the jackpot. I went to a few different shops in Norman and ended up buying 8 candlesticks and 2 vases for a very good price. Here is the collection.
I also bought some brass and copper polish and tried to clean some of them up. Most of them turned out pretty good with lots of rubbing and elbow grease, but a few of them had some bad spots on them. I've decided that i'm going to spray paint them with primer and then a coat of paint, but I can't decide whether I want to spray paint them white, black, nickel, or a gold finish. I've seen someone do this with black spray paint and it turned out really cute. I'd like to try white, but I don't know how it will turn out. Any suggestions?? I'll post pictures once i'm done with them. I plan on putting them around the house for now and one day i'll probably use them as table decorations for my wedding reception.
