As someone who believes strongly that elegance and luxury can always be found on the cheap, I am always on the lookout for beautiful items that I can recreate in my own home.
I was recently browsing Z Gallerie when I stumbled across some truly gorgeous bronze wall sconces, the kind one might see in luxury European hotels or Park Avenue apartments. Of course, those candle wall sconces were not particularly cheap, especially given that you will likely want to buy multiple sconces in order to complete the look.
However, I really wanted that look, as I thought they would complement my newest artwork perfectly. My brain cogs starting turning, and I came up with an unconventional idea for creating these at home for almost zero cost. I realized that a typical bathroom plunger would be able to replicate all of the parts needed to create the wall sconce, while a couple of coats of metallic paint and a dash of hot glue would take care of the rest. Here's how I created my own luxurious candle wall sconces in just a few minutes, spending almost no money at all.
