I bought it knowing we really didnt have any place for it, so I had already kinda given in to the fact that it was going to be a Craigslist flip that I could hopefully make a couple dollars on.
It wasnt until Chris reminded me of how dark our (future) Little Man's closet was and how we could really use some lighting in there, did my mental light bulb turn on...
|And that's WITH a flash...|
I figured I would let the pictures speak for themselves as "technically" as I know how/was explained to me (...do I know how to install a light like this? No, but I purposely married a man who does)
I know somewhere along the way, Chris had to cut into the wall, go up to the attic, drill through the ceiling, shimmie down wire that was connect to the light, cut/split the wire, connect it to a light switch, and not electrocute himself in the process...
Anyway, here are the pictures I received and how I interpreted them... ENJOY!
It's SOOOO much better (especially when you are standing in the closet doorway blocking off the light from the room) and I love the little bit of funky detail the light brings to the space.
For $5 and a little bit of my husband's sweat, it's FANTASTIC!
I guess the next step for the room is maybe spicing up the curtains? Installing some shelving for the 10,000+ books we have for him (I rep a book line and we have been gifted a lot too).
As I head into week 30 (3/4 of the way done!) its go-time to get everything perfect before little man's arrival. Any suggestions on last minute details we should be concentrating on?
P.S- A "Thank You" shout out to the handsome Italian man I married for installing that light through the attic in the middle of summer in Texas... you are certainly a keeper...
