A Light in the Dark

Next time the power goes out, we'll be able to light up the living room in style- all to the tune of $2.75 thanks to a great thrift store find!

I have the living room light on in the first picture so you can see the details a little better, but the second picture was taken with all of the lights off.

Not only is this wall sconce pretty, but it gives off plenty of light to let us move around the room with ease (even with the kids' Christmas stuff still scattered about... *ahem*). A few more candles around the room would give off quite a comfortable amount of light. I love how there is a large glass around the candle to guard the wall from the flame and to help refract the light. The next time the power grid goes down, we will have a lovely, stationary light source for our front room!
