The Bathroom, Part 2.

This summer has marked a full two years in our house. Ever before we moved in, I had a running list of things that I wanted to change or update. The bathroom was at the top of that list. For about two full years now, we've been working on the bathroom. Not all at once obviously... One thing here, half a thing there, another thing here.

I'm quite certain that we've been looking for a light fixture the entire time we've lived here. So, that is the wonderful light fixture I've been looking at for 2+ years.

A couple weeks ago, we FINALLY found a new light fixture at Lowe's. I'm not sure why, but we could never find one that we liked. Most were all too... I guess like what we had. Awful. Well, we were just wandering around Lowe's one day and decided to just walk down the aisle with bathroom light fixtures and stumbled across this one.

We bought this one along with a new light for the bedroom. It has been sitting in our living room for a few weeks now and we finally put it up last night. 

This one was at least easy to take off. Just two screws on the top. Unscrew what's left from the wall and take apart the wiring.

And of course the wall isn't smooth behind there... It looks like someone patched something to the left at some point and only took off the 'decorative' part of the fixture. And of course, the wonderful 1950's wiring. This is actually the fist thing we pulled out and it wasn't a huge mess.

So, for now, I sanded it and painted. I'll have to go out and buy some new stuff to fix up the uneven-ness, which you can kind of see below when the light is on. Hopefully it is something I can do while the fixture is still up. I think I will be able to...

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it. I like it, but... I feel like it's really high and I don't think there is much we can do about it. I guess I'll have to see how I feel later after I fix the wall...
