When most people are putting things like: “New set of pots and pans, Christmas gift for Susie” on their shopping list for this Friday, I am listing things like: “New set of light sconces for the Living Room, faucet for the kitchen sink, and scaffolding”. Hahaha….sounds like more work! Our local hardware store has a great sale on Black Friday and you get 20% off your entire purchase.
So, I need to figure out what kind of light sconces will look good in the living room. Here is a picture of the current sconces (For some reason, they are just not talking to me. I think they are ok, but they just don’t seem to blend in). What kind of sconce do I need? I was leaning towards something a little darker. Like oil rubbed bronze, or even black. I also need to find some piece of art to go on top the mantel to. I put a empty frame up there a while back to see how it looks and it just got stuck there. I have not gotten around to climbing back up there and taking it down.
So, what are your suggestions?
I was thinking about something like this:
While I’m at it, I am going to post pics of the shelves my brother helped make while he was here waiting out Hurricane Gustav. He cut the boards for me. I sanded them and rounded the edges and corners, beat them up a little with a chain and some other things to make it look like it was old and had been walked on for a hundred years, stained them and voila! Then he put up the brackets and hung the shelves. Thanks Jonathan!
