Bargain Find: Wall Sconces

September 9, 2009

Even though Pottery Barn is pretty much ALWAYS out of my price range, I can’t help but wander in. Fairly often. But let me tell you, my friends, to think twice before totally crossing stores off your list.

When I walked through earlier this week, I stumbled upon this table that had some extreme discounts. According to the sales lady, they had “found these boxes in the back and realized they were discontinued so they decided to put them out.” Apparently their negligence was my gain because I got these gorgeous sconces for $6.97 each (marked down from $79.99!!).

The glass globes were not included but I am told that they are a standard size so the Home Depot ones should fit. We shall see! I used to be skeptical about chrome before I redid our guest bathroom. In stores, chrome is a little overwhelming because it is in a sea of over-sparkly chome faucets or whatnot. But in a bathroom, chrome looks timeless and clean. As someone who does not incessantly clean everyday, I have found brushed nickel to be a little dirty looking. Let’s face it, when making decorative choices, it is imperative to consider your lifestyle. Choosing a pedestal sink, for example, when you know you are the type to hoard extra bottles of shampoo (and therefore need the storage space), is unwise.

But to continue with the amazing Pottery Barn finds, they happened to be selling the glass shelves that matched the sconces. I had found some glass shelves at Target for the guest bathroom at Target that I had wanted, but for about $30 for a very thin piece of glass, I ended up passing. So I was really excited to buy these for only $16.97 (marked down from $69.99!):

I want to hang them between the mirror and bathroom vanity. You can never have too much bathroom vanity real estate, and I figure these would be perfect for pesky items like razors or toothpaste.

More to come!
