Where to hang sconces at bath mirror - pic

I'm torturing myself about placement of my sconces around my bathroom mirror. They are 'up' sconces. Thoughts about where I should put them? I don't want to knock holes in the plaster before I have decided.

I give up, is it on the ceiling, behind that light fixture? Or ? Put them slightly higher than your tallest relative's head. Take into account the distance from the mount to the globe. The higher up, the dimmer. Hook one up temporarily to an extension cord, then experiment. You can use gun bluing on your brass fixture, to age a patina. Be safe, G

Ok, broken plumbing is making me retarded (oops, I can't say that can i?). Here' s the pic of the hypothetical sconce location.. I think...

Patina? Do you know how long it took me to clean those MFrs up?

Yuk, Yuk. I'd put them a little higher than the mirror, to accent them. For a triangle, like in landscaping. Maybe 3-4" higher than they are? Now they are about 30" from the ceiling? That's a lot of space, stand back and take another pic., see what I mean? The window dwarfs the mirror group to make it seem even smaller. Be safe, G

Ceiling is 9 feet. Bottom of the sconces are at 6'6'' right now. I'll try 'em up a little higher and see.
