Sconces Are FinishedBlacker

The sconces are done. I finished up the stained glass this morning, and assembled them this afternoon. I don’t have a “finished” picture yet because when I went to install them I realized I needed to patch the wall and touch up the paint…so I’m waiting for the “quick dry” wall compound to dry. The can said “paintable in 30 minutes”, but the fine print also said “allow to dry for 2 to four hours”. So, I guess it’s paintable 30 minutes after it’s been drying for 2 to 4 hours? I remember going to the 1 hour photo place and the guy asked me when I wanted the pictures back. I said “in an hour” and he he looked surprised. Really?

Anyway, as soon as the patch drys I’ll get some glamor shots.  Apparently, watching joint compound keeps it from drying so I’m sneaking peeks out of the corner of my eye.

One of the things I was not sure how it would work out was attaching the sconce body to the top and wall bracket.  I used some thin 1/2″ aluminum angle extrusion and long wood screws to go through the lid into the support bracket.  It seems to be very sturdy.
