Vintage candle sconces are one of my favorite things to transform, and today I wanted to share with you some of my latest creations. I was super thrilled to discover a pair of vintage Homco sconces last week, in a design that I'd never seen before.
Of course, they didn't start out life looking this gorgeous! Oh, no!
This is what they looked like when I found them in a dark and dusty corner of a thrift shop! Ugggh! I'm sure that many people would have overlooked these poor things!
So, after giving them a much needed bath, I couldn't paint them fast enough!
I've used my favorite "creamy-dreamy" white, followed by just the right amount of distressing to give them shabbyliscious appeal!
Who would have thought they could look this pretty?
The details of these sconces, made of a Syroco type of molded resin, are amazing! I've put them in my Etsy shop, along with the next sconces below.
I wish that I'd taken a before shot of these babies. They were an awful shiny dark brown when I found them while we were still living in Washington State. I painted them the same antique white as the other sconces.
They are made by Dart Industries, and truly have the look of carved wood! Of course they had that awful cheap, plastic-y look when they were shiny brown!
Love the floral design!
I think they are much happier now!
I'll be linking up with Kathleen over at Faded Charm for White Wednesday.
