Recently finished up a sconce for my home using a few different types of reclaimed wood stained the same; letting the natural wood grain differences create a subtle tone variation. Just build a frame out of reclaimed white pine and applied Minwax Classic Grey and once dry, sanding it down in spots also to create a bit more tone variation. Construction light all pretty basic. A nice alternative to the overhead can lighting built into newer home construction.

More detail at my blog. Hope you enjoy.

Neat idea for a sconce. Don’t think I have ever saw one like it.

nice light sconce, what kind of light bulbs are those and where did you find them?

The bulbs are just long versions of Edison bulbs. If you search for Edison bulbs on eBay, you should see see a few. Have fun!

Have your say...
