Let there be light! Or, at least some more lights 🙂 This weekend we put up the light in the bathroom, the closet, and the second light in the kitchen.
The light in the bathroom presented a special kind of challenge, as it had to be positioned just right between the air duct, ceiling beam, and the wall!
Luckily we had a light that could bend and flex, so once we found the perfect spot, it was able to fit!
Once all the light bulbs were in, we had to test it out!
We are very happy with the amount of light the fixture gets, but we are planning on switching the halogen bulbs that came with the light for some cooler and longer lasting LED bulbs.
Next came the closet next to the bathroom. We have had a capped wire waiting here for a while, so it will be nice to finish it off.
It even has its own light switch! We have a number of lights that are paired and would have been too much trouble to re-wire separately, so it is a treat to have single-light switches.
And here is the light! It is a LED, so will last for ages and not use a ton of juice. Aaron and I agree that a lighted closet is delightful and suggest it strongly if the chance comes up. 🙂
Last was the second kitchen light, which means we had to take down another florescent light and paint the ceiling underneath.
Once we got the light wrangled up there(which is harder than it sounds, since I am so short and am usually the one holding the light in place!) we could say that the kitchen lights were all done!
Now that we have seen how much light these LEDs give off, we have decided to switch things up and get some different kinds of lights to replace the two remaining lights in this end of the building.
Maybe we will find something at the new IKEA in Saint Louis!
