Pullman Railroad Car Sconce Rides the Rails to WWC!

Pin It

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?...

Instant Makeover...

  1. Amy- I just discovred your blog a short while ago. I love thoat little Pullman lamp. When I was a kid my father and my Uncle went and bought two cabooses when the railroad disposed of them. I had one for a playhouse for a while. I wish I had some of the things that were in there today!!!

    Also went and looked at your bedroom makeover-GREAT job, kiddo! xxoo Diana

  2. I love those, what a great could you go wrong putting those anywhere!!!

  3. I LOVE your little sconce Amy....It'll work a treat near your door....SPEAKING of doors....Can you hear me **purring**....!!!!!

    Hope you're having a SPLENDID week....!

    Cheers for now,
    Tamarah :o)

  4. Oh, that's amazing!
    While I would probably keep it's original paint and patina - wouldn't it be lovely to be able to highlight those art deco motifs shown in the lamp too?

    Such a wonderful find.

  5. I just love your closet door makeover!! The track is TDF for sure!!
