Wall Sconce Love

Hi friends this project was really simple.  When I first spotted this wall sconce at a consignment shop I walked away from it.  I thought about it all night worried someone else would scoop it up.  I went back the next day and made it mine.   I paid $13.00 for it.  This is what it looked like when I purchased it.


 I knew I wanted to lighten it up.  It was very dark,  not my style or very pretty, but definitely very cool.
                                              
                           


                                                       HERE IS HOW I CHANGED IT

First I covered the cord and the socket with plastic & tape.  Then I took it outside and spray painted it white. (Semi-Gloss)




It started to rain so I took it inside to dry.  After it was dry I sanded the edges to give it a shabby
look.  ( I forgot to take pictures of that part.)

Then I just hung it on the wall and gave it three different looks by using three different shades.

My favorite look is the seagrass shade.  Which one is your favorite?  I would love to know!!
