DIY Wall Sconce Video

What to do when you have a house full of kids on a summer afternoon?  Shoot a DIY video???  Yah, that’s how we roll!  We have talked ourselves out of this and put it off for way to long but we bit the bullet this week and we have our brother-in-law, Beffy, to thank for putting this all together for us!  Our kids think we are “cool like Carly and Sam” (Nick show for those of you that aren’t tuned-in 24 hours a day;) so at least we have that going for us!!  We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this project….definitely a Shanty Fav!  So, without further adieu…….

Our First Shanty 2 Chic Video Tutorial!


2 wall sconces for under $10!  Happy Friday and have a safe weekend!!

    can’t find metal or wooden medalions anywhere 🙁 i looked at michaels, hobby lobby, home depot, and lowes. none are even close to the right size… I’m at a loss

    • StaceyMilo

      Try Goodwill. You can find a lot of random things there.

      • Hey, we bought ours in the spring in the seasonal section. I do know that Lowe’s carries wooden ones in the decorative wood section!
