Pin It

Hall of Shame

I hang my head each time I pass.

 

Going on a year, and our hallway is still not finished. But today was great progress! And if I would have had more time (and my compressor) I would have worked on the base boards.

It all started with removing the carpet, and scraping the ceiling. After texturing the ceiling, I installed wood (laminate) flooring, new switches and outlets, and new base boards. As you can see, I’m still not finished with the floor. But what bothered me most? No lighting! Are you kidding me? No hallway lights for almost a year! Man, I’m sorry. <----- like as in lame

Well that lameness stopped today. I finished the lights and got them wired and hung. Then they wouldn’t turn off. gah! A quick rewire and we were good to go. There’s two lights, and they work on dual 2-way switches.

The lights are from a swapmeet. I paid $25 for a box of 5! Some white paint and a new fixture around the opening in the ceiling is really all it took. Same style lights that I put in our office slash craft slash spare slash junk slash everything else, room.

 

What do you think? Good addition? Or not your style?

I think they look good, modern but oldish at the same time! I hate that tricky wiring! Whenever I'm not sure if I did it right, I always take a long stick to turn the breaker back on...just part of my 'crazyness' cuz I know the breaker will just shut back off if its wrong...
