Question Convert Plug in light to Wall Sconce??

Is it possible to convert a plug in picture light to be used in a junction box? I have a "wired" wall sconce that I want to take down and a put up a picture light. My picture light has a plug... any advice?

If you're lucky, your wall sconce is wired to a standard rectangular box to which you can simply add a duplex receptacle. If you have some other kind of box where your sconce is, post back and let us know what you see.

Even if it is a round (or octagonal) box, you can get a plate you
can install a recptacle to, if it won't overfill the box.
