Well, I've been at it again....
I guess by now you all know I can't sit still and just take it easy can I?
I went to Lowes yesterday evening to buy new door knobs for all of our doors. We still had those brassy ones that I despised! But that's another story. Anywho...I saw these beauties and knew I wanted them. I've been wanting wall sconces for a long time now but could never find them in my budget.
Of course I knew I was going to paint them white. I had seen these but at $50 a pop, I wasn't willing to pay that just yet.
Maybe later....but isn't this gorgeous? I always seem to buy things I can re-do to save a little bit of moolah! Plus it feels nicer knowing that I am making something unique.
I bought a lighting kit with a switch. I forgot to take a photo so I am using one from Google.
I cut the wires from the candle base and wired them to the back of the wall sconce. I used electrical tape and plugs to make it nice and safe.
And here they are, hung with a cord cozy and with the shades I made. I just had enough of the British Rose fabric to make them. I was sweatin'....no room for error!
I think they really turned out lovely and the light they give out in this dark area works great.
Now, I don't have to worry about having a floor lamp here anymore.
I love how them look with the mirror and the Spanish window frame. Oh, and did you notice I added a back to the window and painted it blue?
The total cost was under $50 for everything. And just think...if I would have bought the white ones I'd be in it for more than $100!
