Remember I complained about the bathroom light fixture I picked under duress? Well, we purchased a new one and things didn’t go as planned, due to a lack of planning. I’ll explain. (Click here if you haven’t seen the bathroom in its 70s pink phase!)
So, if you recall, here’s the bathroom:
Here’s a manufacturer’s picture of the light fixture:
Funny thing is, that light fixture was already my second attempt, as evidenced by the little note my dad (who did the switcheroo for us) left:
I had originally picked this one out, but it kept burning out the light bulbs and they were a special size the store I bought it from did not carry. Bah.
Third time’s the charm, right? So we took down the old fixture:
|It is all ready to be moved to its new home: the half bath|
We lived with a work lamp for a couple days while we waited for putty and paint to dry:
|Super convenient, let me tell you|
Hurriedly, we headed to the new Lowe’s to pick a new fixture. I was so excited because they have this system where you pick a fixture and the shade you like. I love mix & match! And look at the selection:
We picked a fixture we like and that goes well in the bathroom because its not too modern, not too yawn-worthy. We installed, no problem . . .
. . . but then we put the mirror back. Crap. Someone (me) was so excited they didn’t measure.
|Hubby didn’t really see the problem|
Not eager for a fourth attempt, we flipped them upside down. Tell me: does it look weird???
