Remember that antique store I said was closing? The one where I found Sexy Dress Form? Well, I also found this baby at 50% off.
It is a brass Pullman railroad car sconce. They used to be located in the sleeping berths of railroad cars. Loooove the art deco styling and the petite size.
I have the perfect spot for this baby in the master bedroom. See the open door on the far right? I want to put it on the wall that would be on your left side as you walk out the door. It is a great location to add an extra bit of light to the room. Right now, we either have to turn on the overhead light or walk across half the room to get to a lamp.
I'm not sure when it will get hooked up. Since it requires a bit of wiring, we'll be waiting for the FIL (father-in-law) to come to town. He's a wiz with that kind of stuff!
Have you seen the closet before and after?...
For the this next photo, move your mouse over the image to see the before and after! (NOTE: If you are viewing this in a reader, you'll have to visit the post to view the effect.)
Mucho better, no? See more photos of the entire room makeover here.
