I told you there’d be more.
Don’t worry. I’ll space out the rest of my lighting posts so I don’t bore you all to tears and we don’t have to rename the blog “Homebodies Tackle Lighting Projects.” But for now, this is the only other project/update that I have start-to-finish pictures for already saved on the computer. So you get what you get and you don’t get upset.
Our upstairs hallway light was in a really obscure place. It wasn’t centered on anything. For the life of me I could not figure out why it was put there in the first place. Have I mentioned before how nothing in our house is centered? Oh, I have. One of the many joys of owning an old home. (I actually love living in an old home. But the not-centered thing drives me nuts).
Luckily, this was something that we could fix. Jon was able to install a box (? I think that’s what it’s called) in the center of the hallway. You can witness the off-centeredness for yourself below. It’s the ugly one on the right.
Then, through the magic of the internet, Jon patched up the hole where the old fixture was:
So we could add our new fixture: the Elena Wood Bead Flushmount from Pottery Barn. Shout out to my cousin. This fixture’s for you.
And funny thing about this fixture. The first time I showed it to Jon to get his opinion, he made a face and said no way. He thought it was strange. Then, about a week later, I showed it to him again and he said — that’s awesome! It will be perfect! Men.
And, as an added bonus, we get to turn our upstairs hallway into a discotheque once the sun goes down:
Thoughts? Anyone else have a disco loving light fixture named after their cousin? Just us?
