Hall lights

In an effort to avoid completing the downstairs bathroom, I turned my attention to the ugly hall lights upstairs that can be seen the moment you walk in the front door of our home.

Is anyone going to argue that they needed some attention? They even seemed to be hung to high on the walls. At first, I tried to just spray painted one oil rubbed bronze. The paint went fine and it looks.. fine, but I’m not going for fine. I want to LOVE these lights that I see numerous times each day.

I have to add, I did changes these lights out myself. A year ago I totally would have waited for Chris to get home and would have handed him the unopened box that contained a new light. I’m over that. This was so easy. Really. You can do it. just turn off the electricity first. I almost had Carter video me doing this to show you just how easy it was, but he informed me he was “busy” so, here is a You Tube video for you.

One tidbit: Don’t bother using the orange wire nuts that come with the light fixture. They are just horrible and will make you feel like a failure. Use the current ones or buy new. It will make the job so much easier!
