In The Name of Late-Night Reading

We installed these Home Depot wall sconces yesterday, and it couldn’t have been easier — some quick measuring, two wall anchors, slide fixture onto the screws, then plug in. Voila! Let there be late-night reading… 

Here’s how they look in our room. I love that our curtains hide the cords (which were a translucent plastic anyway, so I suppose they wouldn’t have been too obnoxious if they had shown). And, the lamps have two light settings (dim and full wattage).

 

I am continually impressed by how much of a difference a well-placed light can make — in terms of both ambiance and utility. These were a terrific buy in every sense — less than half of what you’d have paid at Pottery Barn.

A close-up. Can’t wait to see what these will look like against the Ana White reclaimed wood headboard, which I hope to make this spring.
