Sconces over the mantel
1 Attachment(s)

I want to put sconces over the fireplace mantel but the apt complex wont allow channeling through the walls. Any ideas ?

Is that an outlet above the mantle?
Wiremold or battery powered sconces are possible options.

Yes that is an outlet. What is wire mold?

wire mold is a plastic chase/wire management system that you would run your electrical wires/cords through to conceal the wires versus just having wires/cords running up the wall. It gives it a more decorative look. Depending on the color of the wiremold you use, it just might blend into the background.
See wiremold here:
