About every other day I would stroll into our bedroom and locate a single or 2 of our chrome lights pulled onto the floor by our 18 month old. Mix the boys obsession with the lamps and the reality that I always felt they took up to much room on the nightstands, called for a new lighting resolution. I picked up a set of chrome eyeball sconces at a pretty very good price. I knew they required a minor TLC, so I went to function.
These chrome sconces mount by attaching a metal plate to the wall. The base of the sconce is a massive magnet permitting it to then stick to the metal plate.
As you can see there was very a bit rust/tarnish on the base plates.
I utilised the old aluminum foil and vinegar trick to shine up the chrome bases. You can obviously see the polished one particular on the left.
They turned out genuinely well and freed up a great deal of surface space on the nightstands. I experimented with a filament bulb but they produced way to considerably heat. I didn’t want to spend $15 a bulb for LEDs so I had to go with the CFL’s, they hang out a minor but I can live with that.
