Affordable Wall Sconces

Affordable Wall Sconces

Add a sconce or two to your design and it's immediately illuminated, pun intended. Especially, after I found the trick for the battery powered LED lights attached to a sconce that is NOT attached to power. Now it doesn't feel so strange having a random light fixture that isn't actually working. I just love how [...]
