Up-cycled door

This is my inspiration photo for the old door light sconce I made.

This is the old door I found and decided to try this cute idea.

This is the after project

I found a cheap brass sconce and spray painted it cream then drilled holes, added glass crystals and shades.  I added some teal paint to accentuate the texture of the door and used old shelf brackets on the bottom to stabilize it. 

Can't you picture this next to your favorite reading chair?

  1. This is just gorgeous Emily - what a brilliant idea - I love it!

  2. Love this idea, I've had it pinned for a while but have yet to do it! Way to go... Your version looks great! - Susan

  3. Cute Idea!
    I love that it has bracket feet to stop from tipping. I always worry about this for some reason!

    just found your blog... Pat

  4. What a fantastic idea! So unique and fun. I love your headboard also by the way. I found you at Redoux.
