New wall sconces for the staircase
Today I have another post for you about an update that I made before heading out on our trip to Germany.
For a long long time I have been wanting to replace our old and outdate staircase fixtures and I found what I was looking for in this Kenroy Endicott Sconce:
I hated the paintable ugly eighties fixtures we had there before. The lighting was terrible and the look outdated:
|Yuck, nice and dirty too!|
I had to replace two of these scones and they were really easy to switch out. As easy as matching up the same colored wires and screwing them in place.
Unfortunately the hallway is so dark when I turn off the electricity since there aren’t any windows that I couldn’t take any photos. I had to use a flash light to install them. But my friend Jennifer at The Chronicles of Home recently installed some outdoor sconces and wrote a great little tutorial on how to do it (click HERE to read). That’s pretty much exactly what I did. So easy.
Our hallway also contains our family gallery wall where I add a photo of each kid every year.
|Lilly-cat was suspiciously eyeballing my installation.
Now I’m craving color like crazy in this staircase and I wish that I’d have ordered all photos in color as well so I could easily switch them out. Maybe I’ll make myself the work and try to find all the originals in color. It’s a lot of work though!
Or maybe I’ll hang a pretty colorful DIYed tassel from these gorgeous sconces? That would be fun too.

Don’t you think they are the perfect addition and update to our staircase? I’m so happy with them and thankful to Kenroy Home for providing me with the Endicott Sconces.
Wow they suit the place so well! Big improvement Julia. Enjoy your trip to Germany too.
Thank you I will
i love that- it looks so perfect mirroring the frames and the mirror!
Love the change and I really like the b/w photos with them. Totally classic and beautiful!
They look sooooo good – what an improvement! And thanks for the link, sweets 🙂 I am laughing inside imagining you installing these with a flashlight!!
It is the perfect addition! I love the style and your photos and Lily cat! Great eye Julie! xo Nancy
Very classic and understated. Perfect choice.

BIG improvement! I love how well it goes with your gallery wall.
Wow- what an improvement is right! Fantastic Julia- the perfect shape with all your beautiful framed pictures. Gorgeous!!
these are GREAT and work perfectly in this space!
This looks awesome. I adore the sconce so much – modern but also classic.
I love these Julia, they’re different!
Those are great–definitely a big improvement! And I love the gallery wall and that you add a picture every year. My gallery walls tend to stop when the kids turn 4 🙁
Love the sconces and your gallery wall!
You have amazing taste. I love the amount of sophistication the sconce adds to your gallery wall.
Oh I LOVE those! Great selection. They look perfect.
I love the shape! It looks so good around the gallery wall!
