I Changed a Light Fixture!

...and I'm proud, can you tell?

Somehow, and I'm not really sure how or why it's happening (I guess when I get bored), I decided to do a little bathroom makeover at our house. I've always kind of hated the light fixture in our bathroom, so last week I bought a new one (This one from Lowe's) and sprayed it a dark oil-rubbed bronze (almost black... I used two different metallic sprays I had, resulting in an almost-black oil-rubbed bronze. Our hardware/doorknobs/faucets are ORB, so I wanted them to match, but I'm not a huge fan of that finish, so I made it almost black instead... I like black better)

I knew changing light fixtures wasn't hard, because almost every man I know can do it, so I figured I could probably figure it out, too. I found this YouTube tutorial, (kind of a dumb theme they've got going there, but quick and informative, nonetheless) and it worked like a charm. It really was so easy! I also bought 3 seeded clear glass shades from Lowe's too. I really like them - I think they're charming. I'd like to buy some non-yellow Edison bulbs for the fixture -- do those exist? I have an Edison bulb from Lowe's in my living room pendant, but it burns really yellow. I'd like the ones in my bathroom to be not yellow at all. Please let me know if you have any knowledge on this!


I have to patch the hole and repaint the walls now (PLEASE ignore the gross dust on that wall...that obviously needs to go away too!)


Guess what I think I'm going to do in here pretty soon? Re tile! Well, I don't think I'm going to do it, but it's gonna get done. Woo!
