These minimalist industrial wall sconces make perfect reading lights in the bedroom. Begin by cutting two pieces of wood for the bracket. Next, use a router to carve a channel for the electrical cord along the back of each piece; for the top piece of wood, the channel should run straight into a hole drilled through the piece, close to the front edge. Screw the two pieces of wood together to form a right angle. Stain the wood in your desired shade and let dry. Then, string a cord through the hole and down the back. Mount the fixture to the wall, then screw in the light bulb.
