Wooden Candle Sconce Re-Purposed As Fall Decor


 Well, I almost forgot to take a photo of this candle sconce before it was painted, at least ALL painted.

This is a free wall candle sconce that I brought home from my mom's apartment.

I'm sure she found this sconce while thrifting.  Sconces are fairly easy to find.  Some have been made in high school shop classes.  Most are stained with a dark wood stain.

I'm thinking fall.  I decided to paint the sconce in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Honfleur (brown).

I brushed on two coats, and sealed the chalk paint with Deco Art Americana Decor Creme Wax in Clear.




Besides the sconce, I will be using this small metal vase from Hobby Lobby.

Regular price is $5.99, but I purchased it at 50% off.

Since my Honfleur chalk paint is pretty dark, I decided to dry brush my metal vase with Deco Art Americana Chalky Finish Paint in Heritage (orange).

I sprayed the dry brushed vase with Krylon Gallery Series Clear Coatings Aerosol in Satin Finish to seal the chalky finish paint.


Then the metal vase was attached with two screws (one on each side of the taper candle hole) to the sconce.

I love metal tags.  I never find vintage ones.  At least not reasonably priced.

I added this craft store tag with a screw.

I found these Tim Holtz metal tags at Joann Fabrics.
