Ugly lights make for an ugly room.
Yes, this room still needs work. But I sure like this light way better than the old one. Sorry no before picture. But you've all seen them. The boring, square, glass fixture that hangs a couple inches from the ceiling. Yes. Ugly.
So, I just grabbed an industrial housing I had. Slapped a quick pendant light kit in it, and...voila! New light. I got the pendant kit from Orange (Home Depot) for $15. The housing was a thrift find, $5. I didn't even paint it or scrub the rust out. I like it just how it is.
How many of you already have or would like to switch out your lighting?
