if i paint my walls flat black and then add my sconce lights, wont it be too dark for my 60 watt bulbs? we have a room about 14 feet wide by 20 long with 3 lights [with dimmer] on each side. was wondering if i should paint white under my lights so they can reflect a little better? thanks!

Are you painting the whole room black??? or Are you placing the sconces in the front wall???

You can try painting everything black, and if there's not enough light paint the way you describe or get a 100watts bulb :yes:

yours looks good but you dont have the black ceiling gobbling up all the light. think i'll try to do white under the sconces for a little reflection of the bulbs. we only have them down the sides of the room, not in front or back. thanks!
