Our house was completely finished when we moved in so we really haven't done much to it. It's mostly been some decorating or fixing up of a few small things/rooms. Really not all that much. Especially since everything is in pretty good condition, we couldn't justify spending money to replace something that worked just fine.
But last Christmas, we were given the most awesome light fixture from my sister Stacey and her husband Eric. Pure awesomeness it is.
We knew immediately that it would go in our laundry room but didn't get around to making the switch for a couple of months. My plan was to do detailed before and after shots of the room with the old light fixture and the new light fixture but that didn't happen. One day while I was at work, Dan got bored and changed out the light. So I came home to this.
Anyways, as you can see from the above picture, it was off centered and hanging too low. It was about 1/2 an inch above my head and one of the cupboard doors bumped it when opened. But, once again, we didn't get around to fixing that for another couple of months.
So come September, we decided it was time to move the light over. This time though, I captured some before shots.
Finally, it was done. The new hole was cut and the electrical box was moved over.
But that took us another month to do, since we're so slow at things like this. We finally purchased the paint and I finally got around to painting the ceiling last week.
