Can I put sconces on a wet bar gfci circuit?

I have an undersink pump for a basement bar sink.

Can I put light sconces on this circuit?

As long as the pump doesn't require a dedicated circuit (I'm pretty sure it doesn't unless it's an especially large pump), you can use it for other devices.
The downside is you might see the lights dim a bit whenever the pump kicks on.

Be sure to determine whether it's a 15A or 20A circuit and use 14ga or 12ga wire respectively.
