Get The Look: Vintage Schoolhouse Lights

Get the look of vintage schoolhouse lighting with these timeless modern alternatives! 

Incorporating old-school lighting is one of my favorite ways to add a touch of vintage to my home.   

I'm particularly partial to the simple clean lines and opaque glass shades of vintage schoolhouse lighting.  They're classic, timeless and blend in beautifully with my high-contrast, vintage modern decor.

Over the last few years, I've been lucky to find quite a few variations of large antique schoolhouse lights.  I hung one in my mudroom, sold many others and plan to install another one in my new office

I love the classic vintage vibe they add to a space and I can't wait to get my "new" office light installed.  

***TIP*** Most vintage wiring is unsafe and/or not up to code, so please have it inspectetd or rewired.  We opt to rewire.all the vintage lights we install in our home.

Can't find authentic vintage schoolhouse lights?  There are so MANY look-a-like alternatives available to choose from.  

I achieved the vintage schoolhouse look in my kitchen by adding sconces from Sazerac Stitches.  I then replaced the small original globes with larger schoolhouse globes from Home Depot.  It was a simple and cost affective alternative that gave me the perfect vintage modern look I wanted.
