We've lived in our house for 3 1/2 years and I'm ashamed to admit that this awful gold skeleton of a chandelier has been hanging up the entire time. With no light bulbs or glass. I didn't work and I saw it every day. In fact I saw it every time I came down the stairs. So awful!
Since I'm currently in project mode, I decided it was high time to change
that. One of my favorite blogs to follow for DIY home inspiration had
just purchased this light for her entry and I loved it! It's big enough
to fill the space and make a significant impact but also simple and
I put an Edison bulb in it which gives off the perfect glow at
night, just like a night light. And really, besides the fact that both
my husband and I had to get on the ladder nearly 20 feet up while he
wired the light and I held it, this project was easy!
Oh and while I was
up there and the ladder was out I got to clean all the dead flies and
dust off the window sill that I can't reach otherwise. Of course that
lead to cleaning the window inside.... and then climbing on the roof and
cleaning all the windows on the outside... and then since the ladder
was up and I was on the roof - cleaning out the gutters. Whew! I love
that kind of project! It leaves me feeling productive and that one new
light leaves a big impact. Crossing that off my list, next up will be
new lights outside, then the porch....
