Hey guys! Today I’m showing you how to make a really easy modern DIY wall sconce. You won’t believe how easy it is. Let’s go.
CUT LIST AND MATERIALS–
1×6 and 6′ long-select pine (I went with 20″ long – cut yours to the size you prefer
Cut the size of your shelf with the leftover 1×6 (I used 5 1/2″ )
1/8 drill bit
10 screws 1 1/4 long
Titebond Wood Glue
Measure and mark where you want your (5 1/2″) shelf to be (I went to 6 3/8 from the bottom)
Wood Glue your shelf down using your clamps to secure it
Using your 1/8 drill bit, create holes in the back
Drill your screws into the holes to secure the shelf
Stain and let dry. This is my favorite stain in Dark Walnut.
HOW TO AFFIX TO WALL-
- Drill a pilot hole in center (2 3/4 in.)
- Attach to the wall with drywall screws
- Use anchors if needed
