How to make a wall lamp with a shelf

I have a very small living room which means I don’t have any room for end tables, so no room for table lamps and no room for floor lamps. So to add more lighting, I came up with this design for wall sconces that incorporate a shelf that can double as small end tables. I made them using standard materials from the hardware store and only a few hand tools like a drill and a hand saw.

Interested in making your own version of these wall sconces? I got most of the materials for this project at the hardware store and craft stores and here are links to the products I got online:

2″ iron-on wood edging

Light kit

Mica flakes

Pour-on high gloss finish
