I’ve gotta be honest. I haven’t been so great at scoring amazing deals on the lighting for the house. First off, many of the ceilings are open beam so high hats and ceiling fixtures are out. Most of the house will be lit by wall sconces and then supplemented by lamps where needed. I’ve already talked about a couple of them here which were not fabulous deals. So you can imagine my dilemma when I came across the perfect little sconce for the master bath that came with a $200 price tag. It’s the Cube Wall sconce by Tech Lighting.
The project is 90% done and I should theoretically have all the lighting when the electrician comes to trim everything. Also, I don’t think I’ve mentioned that I had to return the first sconces that I got for the master bath because they are totally misrepresented by their picture. FYI, the shade below is white, stark white and I thought all the solid lines were gray or chrome. I was not happy and had to talk hard and fast in order to return them without any restocking fees…in Boca Raton, FL. For those familiar with Boca you know this is not easy.
Anyways, back to the Cube Wall Sconce. I was making my almost daily stroll through Home Depot when I came across a near twin to the Cube at a quarter of the price! But, it was chrome…my fixtures are satin nickel. I’m kind of a stickler when it comes to different metal finishes in a small space. Thanks to google I was able to find the lovely Tanga sconce by Eglo in satin nickel. Of course the satin nickel was a little more but what’s new. Anyways, it was still a score compared to the Tech Lighting fixture.
