Amazon lighting find
I had this dark room in a recent renovation.

This renovation was a beach condo that I wanted to renovate using only DIY projects; you can view more of those projects here.
This bedroom didn’t have a lot of lighting at all.
I’d added a shiplap wall and created a jute headboard in order to make it look more beachy, but it was too dark.
I didn’t want to add something bulky like floor lamps. And, I felt like nightstand lights would take up too much space. I really wanted it to look more modern.
Fortunately, I found these battery-operated wall sconce lights on Amazon.
These wall sconces come in various colors, but I choose the gold color for the look of this room.
Set up was super easy. I just took the bracket, and placed it on the wall. You can see the wall mounts here.
The great thing was that the bracket was almost the exact size as a piece of shiplap, so centering it was easy.
Once the bracket was installed, I placed the faceplate and fixture over that, and then the only thing I had to do was screw it on.
I had charged up the light bulb ahead of time, so I just needed to screw it in and place the cap on it.
They function by way of remote control and are dimmable and can change color. They’re great as a reading light, and my favorite thing is that it’s a great choice for a low budget option.
