Following are pictures of a brass ornate sconce I bought at an auction last weekend right here in my village. For some reason I could not resist, I think because it has birds in it. Now I have a delema as to where to hang it and what to do with it as it is a little more "formal" than my living environment. I really love shabby chic and am thinking maybe I should paint it "white" (distressed) but I'm not committed to that plan.
I have decided to ask for assistance from fellow bloggers. I would love to read what you would do with this piece if you had it. Would you leave it alone or paint it or perhaps paint it in "real colors". Like the leaves green, the flowers in color, the stems in brown etc. Please help. I do love this piece but don't have the "perfect place" to put it. Something needs to be done.
I am anxiously awaiting your replys.
