Thrift Shop Candle Sconce Makeover

I purchased this dark stained candle sconce at the thrift shop this week.  These are usually plentiful and inexpensive at my local thrift shops.


I thought I would make another sign and add a hook like this, but I couldn't unscrew the ledge/shelf on the latest sconce.  I could only unscrew the candle cup.

I gave the candle sconce two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White.  I distressed the piece with 220 grit sandpaper.  After adding a black stenciled fleur de lis from Show Offs, I coated the sconce with clear wax.

I stenciled a small "5" on a miniature pail and screwed it to the ledge/shelf.

Then I stuffed some faux plants in the bucket, and hung my upcycled sconce on the wall.

Easy!
