Taking a Risk

Aloha from Hawaii!  We are off enjoying vacation.  It’s so nice to have extra hands around so I have some time to blog.

Now lets chat about sconces.  We’ve got some ho hum sconces currently in the girls bath; they are so not my style and the spacing is off; they should be about two inches closer to the mirror.

They actually look better in this lousy pic then they do in person.  Every night when we give the girls a bath, I look at the lights in disgust.  It sounds dramatic, but I do.  Every single night.

Poking around One King’s Lane, I found a pair of cute palm beach vintage sconces and I went for them:

They are a bit of a risk but I like the drama that they should bring to the room.  I’m thinking  I’ll spray paint them black.  I’m just thrilled to get something unique in there – I’ll be taking cue from these beautiful bathrooms…

I do love the fact that I’m pushing myself here a bit on my choice of sconces because if I can’t push my own self in my own home, then I might as well throw in the towel now.  We shall see how it turns out.  I’ll post pics once I have them installed.
