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!!

      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!

    What are the wood pieces that you put on the bottom called? I can’t find them anywhere!

    • Ashley on September 23, 2011 at 8:46 pm

      Hey Kaylee! The wood pieces are called finials. You can find them in the decorative wood section at Lowes!
