DIY Vanity Light

I have had so many people ask about Evie's bathroom light lately and realized that I forgot to make a detailed post about it after the big bathroom REVEAL.  I looked for weeks on end for an affordable brass barnyard inspired wall sconce... Long story short, I never could find one under $150...This Restoration Hardware sconce was my favorite from day one.  Especially after putting it onto the design board, but could not get myself to spend that much on a bathroom vanity light. ($219) 

We decided that we would attempt to paint a fixture to achieve the look we were shooting for in order to stay within our budget.  I found this sconce at Home Depot for $30 and hoped and prayed it would be a close match after a pretty little paint job.  


We used my go-to spray paint, Design Master, in Brilliant Gold.  (Also used on our DIY gold bracket shelving!)

Lighting is such an important element in any room, so I was nervous the sconce would be lackluster and look cheap-y.  However, I really do think it turned out fabulous!  Especially since we saved almost $200! What do you think?!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!!

  1. It turned out amazing!! Love it! What a smart move. We have to have ceiling mounted vanity lights in our bathrooms or I would totally do this.
