We have lived in our house for 41 years. We have replaced floor coverings and appliances and counter tops and the roof and the outside doors and the windows and the garage doors. We have redone the fireplace and added shelving. And yet many of the features of the house are original. We are not like the folks on HGTV who have to replace perfectly good stuff. But once in a while something wears out.
One of the lights went out in the downstairs powder room.The light fixtures use exposed globe type bulbs. We may have replaced them once or twice in all those years.
When I was out shopping with the kids last Saturday morning, I picked up new bulbs. Unfortunately that didn't fix the problem.
The fixture itself was shot. That meant Tom had some fixing to do. We went out Saturday afternoon to see what we could find. There were no options for using the new globes I bought. We had to decide on something different.
I didn't want anything fancy and didn't want to spend lots of money. That meant the $50 fixtures didn't make the cut. Eventually we settled on these.
At $9 each, they were a bargain, and had the simplicity I wanted.
Tom got them installed Saturday evening. We had some 60w LED bulbs on hand and put them in. We had light. But, wow, was that light bright and harsh.
So today I picked up two new WARM light LED Bulbs. Much better.
Now I'm happy, and I'm happy that I have a Mr. Fix-it who lives here in this house with me.
