New Light Fixture

24 Apr

About a year ago, our fridge died, and we bought a new fridge. When the Lowe’s people delivered it, they broke our light fixture in our entryway. We weren’t incredibly thrilled with the light fixture anyway, so it was a good excuse to get a new one. But, it wasn’t a priority. So, for the past year, we’ve had a light in our entryway that looked like this.

Yesterday, we finally bought a new fixture- and actually installed it the same day we bought it! I was so impressed that it didn’t sit in the box for another year before we (Jeff) did anything about it. Our entryway is really tall, and our ladder wasn’t tall enough, so our awesome neighbor, Jim, let us borrow his extra tall one. It’s great to have good neighbors! Here’s a picture of the finished product. The only down side is that it takes a much higher wattage light bulb, so it shows just how badly we need new carpet and flooring. Oh well, it will all happen in time!

    Great improvement – like your before and after pictures! Really is pretty. Think of it this way – if you had enough money to do everything right away what would you have to look forward to?!?! Believe me – it is appreciated alot more when you have to work for it.

    Sorry, but I laughed out loud at your “lightbulb on a string.” 🙂 It’s so striking against your pretty wall. But I bet you barely noticed it all year since it’s up so high. Anyway, the new one looks nice.
