Schoolhouse Electric Wall Sconces

I’m looking forward to sharing a “room reveal” post about Kev’s office/our guest bedroom in a few days, but we’ve still got a few things to finish up in there between now and then. In the meantime, and as promised, I thought I’d blog about the light fixtures we’re using in the room. First up, the wall sconces from Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.

The sconces we got are called Irvine Single‘s and we went with a white, enamel-coated metal shades and matte bronze fixtures

We mounted them on the walls on each side of the bed, and like I mentioned in a previous post, I had Brian the Carpenter drill out a hole in each bedside table top so that the twisty, cloth-covered cords could drop down through them. (I chose brown cords, but they come in different colors, too!) The fine folks at Schoolhouse Electric mounted the on/off switches exactly 18 inches below the bottom of each fixture so that our overnight guests could reach them, easy breezy…

And speaking of cords n’ things…the metal grommets I ordered from ended up doing the trick, just like I had hoped!

Crazy how a some of the least expensive, most un-decorative items can finish things off so nice and neat, isn’t it?

    Layla I love this room! I reeeeealllly want to paint my dresser/tvstand in our bedroom the color of that door. And I usually don’t even like red except on fourth of july. Oh, and I guess Christmas. =0)

    I can’t wait to see the finished project! You all are awesome. :) Also, the white sweater pillow in the background of the first picture makes me so happy. I’m officially on the hunt for one now.

    Keep Decorating!
