The Ikea wall sconces we got for the bedroom weren’t quite meant to be mounted to electrical boxes. Instead they were designed to be attached to the wall and then have the wiring run in wire mold, or just hang on the wall and get plugged into a receptacle. So, a retrofit was in order.
Lastly, I covered the edges with some 3M super 88 electrical tape. It’s a high quality tape that is thicker than the cheap stuff.
I mounted the mounting plate to the wooden escutcheon and then mounted the homemade wood escutcheon to the retrofit box (to cover the electrical box you could see a bit of around the edges).
We still need to patch around the far light
But that will come later when we get to working on the bedroom.
