The Perfect Brass Sconces

As a follow-up to this post, we now have sconces and they’re magical! After two months of staring at exposed junction boxes and electrical cables, our new brass sconces are a welcome sight. Afterย much debate, we ended up going with the Vivianne Sconce from TripleSevenHome on Etsy. These sconces checked all the boxes: pretty brass finish, modern meets traditional in design and very easy on the wallet. We got them installed with only a few minor headaches, all related to poorly installed junction boxes in our house (lame, but Cory engineered it, as he does).

Since we’re in an old house in which few things are square, we were meticulous in using a level at every step in the installation process to ensure they were 100% level and even with one another.

Since these sconces are handmade in Florida, there was definitely some added anticipation and waiting time from when we placed our order in late November to when they arrived on our doorstep on Friday, but it was absolutely worth the wait.

And now for the photos:

And a reminder of how far we’ve come with this entryway nook:

It’s so. much. better. And pretty awesome to see my vision come to life in just a few short months.

Theย only downside to these sconces is that I had to shuffle some lamps around to keep it from getting monotonous with the brass base and black shade, so my architectural vintage brass lamp has a new home in the living room.
