Sunday Project....

Hello all...
We've lived in our home going on seven years now. I originally wanted a pendant light over my kitchen sink, but there was no matching pendant available when selecting fixtures during the build, so I settled for a ceiling mounted"boobie" light. For whatever reason, the original light never worked properly (only one of the two bulbs illuminated). I found a very close pendant match at an online vendor and got the "go ahead" from my hubby...I was giddy with excitement (I'm a simple girl!!!). We installed the new fixture yesterday (02-27-12)  and I'm loving it...the installation process and hidden surprise, NOT SO MUCH!!! What we thought would be a fairly easy install turned out to be a royal pain and took much longer than planned. And that hidden surprise I mentioned...we found a lovely hole in the ceiling, an apparent "boo boo" by the electrician. SERIOUSLY!!!!! how could you just leave a gaping hole in someone's ceiling? If we EVER build again, I'm adding that to my lesson learned checklist...check all fixtures inside and out GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

Another lesson learned...Along the way!


  1. Love the new light. My box window behind my sink doesn't have one but needs one. One day. My husband can certainly relate to the surprises. We didn't build this house but it's fairly new. More than once what should be easy updates become major fixes in time.

  2. Hi Kuki, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  3. The new fixture is the perfect touch! And, I sooo get what you mean about surprises when it comes to the home. Sometimes I just want to pull my hair out! : )


Did you know all people smile in the same language? I love hearing from you (smiles and all)!
