Hello! Yesterday I shared the DIY farmhouse custom door trim tutorial and wanted to make sure to talk about the other amazing part about this makeover – the light! It was really simple, relatively inexpensive, and once again, adds a lot of character to our home. The best part about this light is that it did NOT require any hardwiring. I adapted Nesting with Grace’s good ol’ magic light trick and it worked like a charm. Not only is it so much easier than hardwiring but the sconce will also be easy to take down if I want to change it out or if we want to take it with us when we move.
Spray paint the light using the black spray paint. Make sure the paint the hardware that goes on the outside of the light. I didn’t do that so if I’m standing directly under the light I can see the galvanized metal color but from the front and sides I can’t see it so whatever. Maybe I’ll get around to painting it at some point…
Add the AA batteries to the puck light and close the cap. Test out the light and remote to make sure they both work.
Remove the magnet off the back of the puck light and attach the sticky side of one of the strong hold strips to the back of the magnet.
Attach the two strips together on the black sides so that they are both on the magnet now.
Remove the paper from another Scotch strip and attach it to the inside of the sconce. Hold it there for about a minute.
Add the puck light to the magnet.
Attach the sconce to the wall (we just stuffed all of the wires into the sconce before hanging it).
Use the remote or click the light (depending on how high the light is) to turn it on and off!
