Project 20: Finding lightsMay 18, 2011
As far as I’m concerned, the best place to find used housing fixtures and building materials is the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. They always have an eclectic selection so be sure to shop with an open mind. Since I had no set idea of what kind of light I was looking for I figured this would be a good place to start.
After a long browse I selected two sets of matching brass sconces. One is better quality but has more decoration than the other set, which is very plain. I decided that having a backup set will prevent me from needing to go back to the store if the better pair either doesn’t meet my husband’s approval or won’t work in the room. When we select a set I’ll rewire them and hang them on the wall. Easy, right?
