Default Sconces over the mantel

Hi,

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

thanks

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

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:http://www.legrand.us/wiremold/racew...cord-duct.aspx
