in my effort to draw out the makeover of the boys'
rooms i accomplished only one more tiny thing this week.
you may remember the wall treatment i finished up
several weeks ago behind bean's bed.
it's a dark little recessed area but a perfect nook
for his bed.
the outlet on that wall is wired to the light switch for the room
so i wanted to put up a plug in sconce.
then i started pricing them. good grief!
since that wasn't in the budget i found an inexpensive
candlelight sconce from lowes that i thought would be
perfect for the space.
only problem, not a plug in.
so, i did what any self respecting diy'er would do.
i adapted it.
all that was needed was a lamp cord set, some
wood screws and a cord mate.
all you do is take the two wires from the light,
that would normally be tied
into the wires from the wall box, and tie them
into the plug. the ground
wire can either be left alone or wrapped around
the screw on the mounting bar.
