The Sconce Saga

The sconce saga
As we continue to prepare the house for sale, we face decisions about how to tackle items that should be replaced. Consider the sconce at the landing on out back staircase. It reminded me of a bra cup and Mr. Designdumonde hated that you could see into it as you descended the stairs. Down it came for the continuation of SW Repose Gray on the walls.  Mr. D asked what to do with it. I said throw it away. So he did and I promptly went looking for a replacement. I found this.

We are trying to keep the budget low while not using obvious ugly, builder-grade fixtures. Oh yeah but nothing too crazy stylish that your average Joe and Jane would not understand. So, vanilla with a cherry but no sprinkles. Sigh. So Mr. makes the fatal mistake of asking if I could find something for less $$. Grr. I find this and order it.
The sconce saga Stop laughing.  It was too big and sucked so it went back. Just get the other one Kerry. Nope it was out of stock by then so the search continued.
I wanted this Arteriors Pruitt sconce.

 Or the Arteriors Voughn sconce but both came in around $400 and since I am leaving that ain't happening.

Yesterday I peeked at Home Depot and found my original choice was back in stock and ordered it. Whew! Please keep your fingers crossed that it does not suck.
