DIY: Sconce Solutions

From Julie
Two clever solutions to the unattractive-sconce-in-a-rental dilemma: one in New York, one in Los Angeles; both easily replicable with a silver-bowled light bulb, a screwdriver (to remove ugly shades), and a can of spray paint.
Above: Anna of Door Sixteen spray-painted her brass-and-glass sconce fixtures glossy white ("Happily, they came out looking like porcelain") and ordered round Silver-Bowl Decorative Globe Light Bulbs from 1000 Bulbs ($3.47 each).
Above: Faye of You Are the River removed an unappealing shade and installed a silver-bowl lightbulb.

OMG! I sat down at my computer this morning to read my daily blogs, I'm scrolling through Remodelista and I see MY house! Seriously!  I never thought I could be so happy to have an ugly sconce in my apartment.  Thanks Remodelista I'm really honored!
