Sconce Redo

I hope that these pictures show you the redo that I did on these Home Interiors Sconces for my new office space.  They have been hanging in my entryway on two sides of the closet door since we built the house six years ago.  I've been sick of them, but had no ideas about what to replace them with.  Well, I still have no idea what to replace them with, but I had a need for them in my office.

 All it took to transform these ugly things into a little bling was a couple of coats of black spray paint (did I say recently that I should own stock in spray paint?).  I haven't fixed the mis-matched candles in the holders, yet, but hey - they make me so much happier in their new home.  That box between is an antique Dr. Pepper wooden box filled with all the glues and things my kids can't have, but I need access too!  I got it at a rummage sale for $2! 

This all hangs over my two sewing machine cabinets on the wall.  I know that it needs something more,  I just haven't decided what yet.  I would love any advice you could give.  Oh, and me sure to page through the rest of the blog for some of the other office redos I have been working on!  Also - check out my new button to the right - it has a sample of my material used for my Roman Shades that I made! Be sure to share my button on your blog, too! I think it's turning out great little-by-little.


  1. My husband always said I never found a can of spray paint I didn't like. Sad but true. I love to spray paint! Should have been a tagger!

  2. Always loving what a little spray paint can do and the way it allows you to keep on using things that you might not otherwise! They look great.

  3. I'm always amazed at these simple transformations. Nice.

  4. Much better painted black. I love taking things that you are tired of and giving them new life through paint. Thanks for linking up to FFF!


I love to hear what you think! Thanks for your feedback!
