Places where one can pick up one of these items vary. Home furnishings stores, lighting stores, flea markets, thrift stores, catalogs, websites, recycling centers, and classified ads are all potential sources. Many wall sconces can be refinished with paint, glitter, or whatever suits the decorator`s fancy. The possibilities are unlimited. A large number of grouped sconces can make a striking wall display.
A wall sconce is often used as an accent item. They are often used in pairs on either side of a mirror or painting. They also look striking in their own. Of course ones holding live plants must have adequate sunlight. Those with candles or electric bulbs can enliven dark corners. Many people think these items are for only the living room or entryway. However, these versatile decorations can beautify a wall in any room. Sconces can go above the headboard in the bedroom or flank the mirror in the bathroom. It is always a good idea to hang a sconce, particularly if it is heavy or will be heavy when loaded, over a wall stud. Hardware and home improvement stores generally carry inexpensive stud finders to help determine the safest place to hang a sconce or other decorative item.
