Getting there

There were eleven top lights in our home that need/needed replacing before we moved in. Now there are just six! [Don’t tell AO; I fear he thinks we’re more than halfway there.]

Every one comes with its own set of horrible challenges. But AO meets every one. For realsies.


What IS that? The rim is wooden and the whole thing is super heavy.


And the medallion, as it turns out, had a piece that came down and hooked into that screw/nut piece. It was altogether odd. I should have taken better pictures of it, but our time was eaten up trying to get it off the ceiling. It took forever. Seriously. I ended up nearly hanging from parts of it in an effort to eliminate it from our lives.

I really wish I could more adequately describe what it took to get that thing off.


It involved AO’s genius idea of using drill bits to get at the screws attached to the ceiling.


Originally, I thought the medallion could stay, but no. She had to go. There is absolutely no place for her in our lives. Or yours. Plus, taking her off the ceiling revealed she is from circa 2004, so there is really no love lost.In her place, we put up this lovely.


And guess what else? We put one in the guest room, too. So come stay!

    They are very lovely and a lot of hard work.
