From "ick" to "slick"...Sconce Rescue

Pin It

I found these two outdoor sconces under a table at a garage sale...covered in grime, with broken glass and missing parts. My junker's instinct took hold and said, "Here's a diamond in the rough." So, I removed the tops, removed the glass, gave both a good scrubbing, reassembled them without the glass, and added some votives. Voila! Two fall/Halloween-inspired lanterns. Great for a tablescape or hung from a hook in the entry or on the porch to welcome trick-or-treaters (careful with the flame, of course!).


  1. Thanks for posting on my blog. I love your transformation......just perfect for fall......good eye!

  2. I saw these yesterday! Fantastic! Thanks for dropping in for a visit today!

  3. OK, next spring when our house is finally built I plan on transforming a china cabinet. . . I will be contacting you for guidance.


Life whispers...what is it saying today?
