Idea: Silver Tipped Bulb

I was catching up on my perusal of decor blogs when I saw this really cute light fixture this morning – actually an ingenious DIY idea – on Door 16.  You may have seen it already, since she posted it in January, but I somehow missed it until now.

This is one of those ubiquitous brass sconces found in many an old house (and all my college dorm rooms). Anna spray-painted the brass glossy white, for a porcelain-like appearance, then added an oversize silver-tipped bulb from Totally cute. Makes me wish I had an ugly sconce to transform.
