Master Bedroom: Rad Cover and Sconces

Jul 28, 2010 +

A few more bits and pieces of the master bedroom to show you...


Here's the radiator cover HandyMan made. This is the third one he's made and I think its the best one yet. He tried to complement the style of the paneling we have in the bedroom by using similar trims. I especially like the look of the feet... the cutouts near the base make the cover look a little less heavy and massive in the space.


And a few photos of the one bedside sconce (Wyatt sconce from Pottery Barn) we have installed. My American cousin finally came for a visit and dropped it off. It was worth the wait :)



Luckily the scale and size of the sconce was just as I hoped. It looks good on the little platform we added in the paneling. I really like the warm dark metal against the creamy wall. Its nice and sturdy too. On some sconces I've seen, the arms feel flimsy and the dials lose their tension and don't hold the adjustable arms in place. These ones lock nice and tight and don't seem to sag at all.

We haven't installed the second sconce yet because Chloe's crib is still in our room...and we have to dismantle it to get it out of the room... and then we can install the sconce... and then we can hang up some art... and then we can take some pictures... and then we can finally reveal the room to you all. Just in case you were wondering.

  1. Wow! Your husband is seriously talented! Do you not have Pottery Barn in Canada, or is it just that much cheaper to buy in the US?

  2. I'll tell him you think so Sara :) We have Pottery Barn here but that particular sconce was available internet only and shipping to a US address but I HAD to have it so I had to find a way to make it work!

  5. Wow, that trim work looks professional.

    I am also from Canada and find it frustrating that I can't order or buy any Pottery Barn lighting.

    Sigh. :)

  6. Can't wait to see what you've done. I'm currently working on a design plan for my master.

    On a side note I saw this post and thought of Chloe.

  24. Your sconce looks simple yet beautiful. It fits with the white paint on your wall. We have also hand forged iron sconces designed like medieval sconces. Our home is inspired by medieval art because I really love medieval designs. I also added some hand forged iron chandeliers in my kitchen and master bedroom so my home will look like a medieval castle.
