I'm looking for some 1950's era style wall sconces or something I can make into a wall sconce. Here's what I found so far, but 10 1/2" from the wall seems a little extreme: http://www.formplusfunction.com/4682.htm

Any ideas?

one guy here painted in gold and silver metalic paint (Behr) and it looked very cool. They have a lot of different shapes and you can paint in fifties colors.

That's cool! I'm still trying to decide on my color scheme. The colors I have so far are:

Diner booth: Teal and white (Like 56 chevy seats)
Table: Lighter teal with boomerang pattern in gray, white, and dark teal
Drapes: Black
Diner floor: Black and white ceramic tiles (checker pattern)
Walls: Currently yellow

Notes: I may tone the walls down a bit to an ivory color in the diner. Not sure what to do with the theatre area. I'm also considering painting the ceiling in the theatre flat black, but since it's angled it may look like crap. See this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...6#post11271136

I think the sconces would look good in a metallic silver or chrome.
