Project Description

ASSIGNMENT:

Your assignment is to build a wall sconce light of your own. It can be identical to the sconce detailed in the tutorial or one of your own design. Before ordering your materials, choose a location for the sconce in your home, as it's always most fun to create when you have a specific location in mind for the completed project!

If you plan to make any modifications to the sconce design, (paint colors, shade changes, etc.) share your plans in the gallery so we can follow along in your design process!

DELIVERABLE:

Now it's time to show off your work! Once your sconce is complete, post a photo of the installed sconce in the project gallery so we can all see each others' awesome-ness!
