Let there be light!

In the dining room I have a dark zone.. as in no light, no light fixtures. I solved the problem by first spray painting two cheap wall sconces I found at the thrift store with Rustoleum Hammered 7218830 - Dark Bronze spray paint to match my dining room light fixture, then mounting them onto to "decopage" boards, that I took a router to to make a ridge for a lamp fixture cord to run down so I could simply plug them in like a lamp. I simply wired them as a lamp and ran the cords to an outlet that has a switch. Works great and no more dark zone!

Hi Rob, a great idea. I too hate dark spots in my home. It looks nice too. Good job!

I think I need to make friends with spray paint. I have seen so many cool makeovers on these blog posts... And I certainly have a lot of things that could use a spruce up!
