First Sconce


#1

So I tried to make my own sconce… and it actually turned out pretty cool!

The front is 10.5" x 10.5" and is attached to the wall via 4" standouts. The whole thing is 1/8" plywood that I didn’t really finish. This is mostly just a proof of concept to see if it would look cool, and by golly, it does!

I used parchment paper to diffuse the light behind the design. I adhered it with wood glue, but next time would definitely use some of the spray on adhesive stuff as it got a lot more wrinkly than I would have liked.

Reminds me of a poster my sister had … only it was in psychedelic colors under the blacklight. Very, very cool sconce!

That makes a wonderful sconce! And I love the diffuse light effect from the parchment! Great job on it! :grinning:


#11

if you don’t want to mess with the parchment, you could look at some sort of 1/8" frosted acrylic. or even a piece of frosted or textured glass.

Concept proven. First sconce. Not last sconce by any means.
