Thank you so much for visiting REinvented, I really appreciate it.
I am excited to share with you some easy DIY wall sconces that are crafted from scrap wood and spoons.
I am completely smitten with the look of warm stained wood and white walls lately.
And if you add a little tarnished metal…well that’s just heaven on earth.
Here’s my rationalization process:
1. My foyer is dark, it can use some light
2. My bicycle wheel foyer table is rustic, with warm wood, white paint, and metal, but there’s nothing else in the foyer that echoes that style.
3. I have scrap wood.
4. I have spoons.
Rationalization process complete.
So cool, huh? Here’s how
I we made them.
I sweet talked the engineer into cutting down some 1×2’s of scrap wood into six 10 inch pieces.
He used wood glue and a clamp to attach three side by side to make the bases of the sconces.
After they dried I sanded them mostly smooth and stained them with Minwax Dark Walnut.
Can I just interrupt this process real quick to say that I miss the sun? My house is soooo dark in the winter
After the stain dried, I attached sawtooth hangers to the back of each wood “plaque.”
The engineer gently bent the spoons so that the spoon part was perpendicular to the handle part. I hot glued them to the wood.
The spoons are the perfect size to hold a tiny battery operated candle.
Umm…yes. I love this. Here are both sconces NOT hanging in their permanent home.
My plan is to hang them above the foyer table, on either side of the striped canvas that I just changed from turquoise and white to Cracked Pepper and white, because I. can’t. stop. painting. things. Cracked. Pepper.
Don’t they look like BFF’s? As soon as I get this wall painted, (remember Home Goal #4 is to repaint our dark foyer?), the sconces will be hung in their permanent lovely homes.
Thanks so much for visiting!
