Lights


I had promised this post for awhile- just now getting around to it! So ... we had these lights in the guest bathroom and we didn't like them. The silver was ok- at least it wasn't gold - but the "Hollywood" look went out some time ago ...

Conrad found a nice replacement set at Lowe's on the clearance table for $15. Typical of us, it sat for months ... until one day we got a wild hair and decided to put the light up ... but alas, when we took down the Hollywood light, there was a huge hole the size of Conrad's fist behind the light. Now we have talked about this- there are some great things about this house- crown molding, garden tub, french doors, etc ... and then there are some awful things about this house- the way it's so cheaply built, for one. SURE, it withstood a hurricane - but things like a hole in the wall - commonplace.

So. Conrad went to install the light, but it didn't cover the hole. It would have needed a nice patch job. So he went back out and bought ANOTHER light that would actually cover the hole. There was a small hole still there, but we patched it pretty well and I painted around the new fixture and ta-da! It looks GREAT!!!!

See for yourself.

Hollywood lighting went out some time ago? No one told my bathrooms! Guess I'm going to Lowes!
