A Candle Sconce Makeover
I love candle sconces and chandeliers - when in New York recently I stood like an idiot in the lighting dept of ABC Home and drooled over the crystals and bling of the fabulous chandeliers there. So when I spotted this 'second' candle sconce in a brocante store, here in France ,I thought I could add a bit of sparkle and pizazz and it would be perfect for the guest room
It was quite pretty already but not girly enough for this new room :)
So I added a little metal paint, wiping off the excess before it dried to give a bluish vintage look.
I picked out some beads and vintage chandelier parts - in the end I didn't use all of these. I attached the glass beads to wire and then tied the strands to the sconce, glued on some jewellery jump rings to hang the drops from, disguising them with some more glass beads and then glued on some enamel and lucite flowers with trusty e6000 adhesive. and ta daa :) some bling for my guests :D
