New Lights!

Well, we did it.

We swapped out the light above our dining table. We weren’t totally sure we needed to (as I said here), but when the light we were eyeing went on sale for a limited time, we figured we should take advantage.

The old switcheroo worked out well – our old light looks perfect in Grace’s room and our new one better matches the overall vibe we have going on downstairs. It’s a bit hard to capture it in pictures because it’s a heavy wire frame with an open construction, but it looks pretty dramatic in person.

It was a little bit of a sad project – back home electrical work would have meant spending time with our friend Paul who is an electrician. This time, I spent time with Daryl. Nice, but not quite the same.
