My favorite ones were from Kathy Kuo , but they were $675 for a pair. With all the appliances we had to buy, I could not justify spending that much on sconces. I started looking on Pinterest for ideas and found this from Far Above Rubies . She did such a beautiful job, and I was very inspired to try this DIY antique french candle sconce myself.

It was pretty but I decided to paint it instead. Here it is without the iron painted:% | % | % | % | % | % | % | % | % | %
