Sconce Renaissance

Sconce Renaissance
Every time I see the word “sconce,” it makes me think of scones. Mmmmm. The following redo is a sconce, not a scone, but nevertheless, it’s still a tasty treat!
 Kristi gave her outdated sconce a quick makeover and didn’t even take it off the wall! She just taped around it, gave it a quick coat and replaced the ruffly glass thing with a new shade. Looks great! Check it out on her blog Creative Kristi, and thanks to AnNicole from Our Suburban Cottage, for bringing this one to my attention!

    I still can’t get over how a coat of paint can totally change the entire piece. This sconce looks amazing now!

    Sometimes I just look at these and think, “Whew!” So much better. I can sleep at night knowing that there’s one less sconce that looks like the “before” in the world. Great thinking on this one.

    This is timely. I just took some brass sconces off my wall. I was going to get ride of them, but now I may paint them. Hers looks great.
