If you look carefully to the right of the brass candle sconce, you will notice a blank steel wall plate. When the homeowners installed the new sink, the electric sconces that were on either side shifted off center. They were constrained by the mounting requirements for the new sink.
We opted to remove the electric sconces and cover the area with a large mirror. The mirror I had really wasn't wide enough to completely cover the blanks we put over the electrical boxes, so I thought I'd keep an eye out for something that would finish the job.
Eventually, I did comes across something - this pair of brass candle sconces with large enough bases to cover most of the steel blank plates. I paid $10 for the pair.
The candle sconces lend the bathroom sink a nice old-world feel. In fact, so much so that they distract me enough to not notice any remaining steel plate that may show (for the most part).
When Mike was installing the sconce on the right, he said that he could see the steel plate peeking out from the right edge.
I said, "Well, we don't stand over there so it won't matter."
This is the difference between renting and owning.
