This week I’ve been making a light fixture in our kitchen. Like everything in life, it has taken longer than expected. But in my defense, when I say “making a light fixture,” I don’t just mean buying a light fixture and installing it. We’re talking about installing an adapter for the old recessed light, then building and wiring my own light fixture from cord, sockets, and a canopy I ordered online. I even made my own ceiling medallion. This thing has been a labor of love, and I’m not quite done yet. But it’s almost there.
So close that I even bought cool retro lightbulbs and lit it up.
The bulbs are these, though I bought mine locally in Portland at Sunlan Lighting (otherwise known as “that lightbulb store on Mississippi everyone has walked by a million times but never been in.”)
This is really just a teaser for the full post on this project, because hopefully I’ll finish it up in the next few days and share the details next week.
