I see these 70’s wall sconces at thrift stores and garages sales all of the time. Although I don’t really have a need or want for the actual candle holder part, I LOVE the pretty scroll-y detail. Now just because this is a wall sconce, my friends, does not mean I have to use it as a wall sconce. 😉 It is sometimes much more interesting to give new life to things.
We are in the process of changing up my daughter’s room and I thought how awesome this would be as a necklace or scarf holder. So not only are we adding some interest with the pretty design elements, it is also serving a purpose! Pretty and functional? That is my favorite.
The gold alone is already fun and vintage, but we wanted a pop of color. Just a quick coat of Valspar’s Tropical Oasis spray paint and it takes on a whole new & youthful look! How great is this color? *We did sand it a tiny bit to let the gold come through on some of the details.
Such a simple update. Just a few bucks and a few minutes and we have a unique and custom piece to add character and interest to my daughter’s room. Love it.
I challenge you to think outside the box with your decor…it’s fun! Do you have a favorite repurposed project?
