Let There Be Light

25 Jul

Wife’s version of the story:

When the previous tenants left the house, they stripped it down to bare bones. The phrase “they took everything but the kitchen sink” certainly applied, and that included the light fixture in the breakfast area of our kitchen. I decided the very first project on Husband’s honey-do list was to remove this eyesore.

Husband’s version of the story:

I didn’t think the light bulb suspended from the ceiling was that big of a deal, but I could tell by how frequently she oh-so-subtly commented on it that she wasn’t going to let it go. After walking into it a few times, I decided that it would be my first project in the house.

Husband is extremely skilled at all electrical wiring, so hanging the light fixture was a cinch.

I fell in love with this fixture from Home Depot - it even has matching pendants and sconces.
