Here's the new light we just had installed over the kitchen table on Friday. The walls behind it are freshly painted in a soft beige by yours truly. It's an improvement on the ugly-ass kitschy border that was up there since we bought the house.
What you can't tell from the photo is that the light is colossal in size - approximately 3 feet across and takes up most of the space in our modest kitchen. I bought it online and thought it was about a foot or 18 inches across. Nope. It looks like a small alien spacecraft is hovering in the airspace above our kitchen table.
But it's growing on me.
We also got a fan installed in the attic, some of the El Cheapo baseboard thermostats replaced, and three ceiling lights put up in the bedrooms that formerly had none.
That's enough home improving for one week.
