The Ghost of Versailles Sconces: There were 16 sconces total on the two walls (pictured above), each scone had three candles with six LED diodes , three warm and three cool). Each candle had to be soldered to CAT 6 cable with an RJ45 connector on the end. I spent about 20 hours total soldering these sconces.
