Home Decor: Decorating with Candle Wall Sconces

hipncreative.wordpress.com | Home Decor: Candle Wall Scones

So I’ve had these mirrored wall sconces since forever and I wasn’t sure what to do with them.  I used to have them on the wall of my old dinning room but when we moved to our new home I decided not to use them in the dinning room again.  So I put them away -where they sat in storage for a THREE years.  Until a few weeks ago.

I was chatting with Tan about our back patio and was thinking of creative and inexpensive ways to spruce the place up when, boom! I remembered my wall sconces!  So Tan and I decided right then and there to put those bad boys to use and up they went.

It took us about 10 minutes to decided where we wanted them and to drill holes on the wall.  We used a hammer drill and some concrete anchor screws to make sure they stayed in place. [Please ignore the ugly shades and old door -those I’ll tackle in another time!]

See how purdy they look?  [Although the pictures show real candles I switched them to battery operated candles that I also had in storage.  No risk of any of the kids getting hurt.]  Now I need to tackle the rest of the room.

It’s amazing how switching out your decor can give a room a pop of character.  I really do urge you to switch your decor around, it gives life to a dull space and doesn’t cost you a thing!

Have an awesome weekend!
