Wall Sconce Love

in , , , , by Julie Nichols, May 15, 2013

Hi friends this project was really simple.  When I first spotted this wall sconce at a consignment shop I walked away from it.  I thought about it all night worried someone else would scoop it up.  I went back the next day and made it mine.   I paid $13.00 for it.  This is what it looked like when I purchased it.

 I knew I wanted to lighten it up.  It was very dark,  not my style, or very pretty, but definitely very cool.

                                                       HERE IS HOW I CHANGED IT

First I covered the cord and the socket with plastic & tape.  Then I took it outside and spray painted it white. (Semi-Gloss)

It started to rain so I took it inside to dry.  After it was dry I sanded the edges to give it a shabby
look.  ( I forgot to take pictures of that part.)

Then I just hung it on the wall and gave it three different looks by using three different shades.




                                                                  WHITE LINEN

My favorite look is the seagrass shade.  Which one is your favorite?  I would love to know!!
