Midas Touch Strikes Again: Arrow Sconce Look-Alikes

Remember this lovely antique brass arrow sconce that I talked about in my arrow post here?

Well, I took the plunge and decided to do a designer look-alike of sorts by transforming two of these inexpensive arrow wall-hangings I ordered from Hobby Lobby for less than $16 total...

All it took was my trusty tube of Antique Gold Rub 'N Buff (I think a single tube of the stuff may just last forever), a soft cloth, and about 15 minutes time.  And, this is what I ended up with...

I hung them on either side of a bookshelf in our guest room that I'm re-doing and very excited to show you soon...still have a few projects to go in there before I do a full-on reveal.

What do you think?  Is it a good designer look-alike?  Much better than paying several hundred if not thousands of dollars for real antique brass sconces.  I at least got the look I was going for, for uber-way less!

Heck yes, love it! Am I crazy.. I really like how you treated them, but I loved them before too! Every time I see arrows I think of you, honest. :)
