I have some sconces in my entry and stairwell, that are nice enough, but the problem is when you are coming downstairs, you have a view right into them - right to the bulb and the wiring and stuff. Pretty ugly.
I was out pricing new ones this afternoon, and they all averaged about $90. (Gasp!) Since I need 5 of them, that's just a bit more than I want to spend.
But, I did see these ones at Ikea for only $20. I think the should solve my problem, since they seem more closed than my old ones, but do they look too much like some sort of space ship pod thingy?
