Successful Project!

We changed the light fixtures in two places and it went according to plan. Miraculous! The hallway had an old-fashioned hanging fixture with “candle” lightbulbs in it. Not really my thing. Swapped that out for one of those flush-mount boob-looking things, and it looks great. Plus we put in CFL bulbs so we can save a few bucks. Those things are great but they don’t get bright very fast, which is frustrating.

This is the old hall light:

FYI – CFLs on ridiculous sale at Costco thanks to a manufacturer’s rebate. $0.99 for a four-pack. We have enough to last us for years!

The whole process went really well, from removing the old light, to hooking up the bracket and wiring, and putting up the new light. The hardest past was how I had to hold up the new light, statue-of-liberty-style, for several minutes while Dave hooked up the wires and screwed the bracket into the junction box. Nobody brought me any tired, poor, or huddled masses while I was holding aloft my light fixture, although Mojo did bring me a rubber band he wanted me to play with.

For the record, the manufacturer is obviously encouraging me to call it a boob-light, because the instructions refer to a nipple. I have proof!

We put an identical flush boob-light in the office, too, replacing the old glass square that was up there. The new fixtures were on sale at Lowes so we got two for the price of one.
