When You Can't Find A Wall Light - Make It Yourself

my vintage wall lights
You would think that I of all people would be able to find a vintage wall light. Well you would be wrong. I got so sick of searching that I decided to design and make them myself.
Take 2 vintage frames
2 concealed hangers for frames
2 backboards painted the same colour as your wall, drill hole in each for wire to pass through
2 blocks of wood placed on reverse of backboards to screws from light fittings
2 very plain wall lights
2 shades from Ghost Furniture accessories range
Put them all together and get a man to wire them into the wall
Result - 2 wall lights that no other person on earth will have.
