I had a single wall sconce with a 40w bulb for light in tv room and it drove me crazy. So I decided to make a new one that would match my display case http://lumberjocks.com/projects/102362 my tables and chair http://lumberjocks.com/projects/102267 and my tv cabinet http://lumberjocks.com/projects/102321. I made it from QS red oak and stained it with golden oak. 3 coats of water based finished and put it in the tv room.
Now I can see in the dark and it looks great in the daylight.
I got 10 lights from a yard sale for $4.00 and took them apart and painted 4 of them white.
I used a clear plastic like plexi glass for the windows. I sanded them with 80 grit sand paper to make them opaque.
I put in 4 LED bulbs and put it on a dimmer.
