Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe team creates bamboo sconces with a really modern line, which helps to combine the couple's opposite design styles.
Materials and Tools:

existing wall electrical (sconces or in-wall wiring that is sconce ready)
sconce that is fairly flush to the wall
14 pieces of 7' foot tall bamboo, 1" in diameter
3 cut pieces of triangular 3/4" plywood
2 pieces of 1/8" plywood
nail gun with long nails
miter saw
hot glue gun

Notes:
1. If you use thinner pieces of bamboo you will need more pieces, if you use thicker than 1" you will need less.
2. There should be two inches of clearance between any part of the light fixture and the wooden sconce.

Steps:1. Attach the sconce to wall, according to the manufacturer's instructions, with the cover attached (no exposed bulb) to create a heat barrier.
2. Nail the three pieces of triangular plywood to the wall underneath the sconce, making sure you have two inches of clearance between the light and the outside of the triangle.
3. Nail the the pieces of 1/8-inch plywood to the triangle pieces. This creates the triangular backing on which to attach the bamboo.
4. Stand the bamboo up and hot glue it to the boards, leaving a very little gap going from one end to the other, until the sconce is hidden.
