OK, so I know I look fabulous!
But this is me getting ready to add some bling to my bathroom. I wanted a light over the tub. So I get to climb in the attic!
Thus my fun attire.
First my hubby marked the spot on the ceiling centered over the tub. Then he poked a long wire up through the attic so I could see where to clear back the insulation.
Then I watched him cut the hole.
And soon I could see my sweet hubby down below.
Here's what it looked like from below.
Then we installed the after construction box. I then drilled a hole in the top plate of the wall and fished a wire down the wall to my hubby.
Now we are ready for the fun stuff.
Oh wait, here is one of our photo helpers.
Next I found this canopy at DI for 50 cents. Love the detail. I planned on adding a light fixture over a year ago, so I was always on the look out for something. I found this chandy at IKEA but it was $40. Well that was to rich for my blood. But as I was leaving I checked out the clearance center and there was the exact chandy for $9.99!
The light came with the ugly canopy on the left. So I spray painted my 50 cent one silver.
What do ya think?
I love it.
Next I found this ceiling medallion at the RESTORE for $2. It just keeps getting better. Did I say that out loud? The thrill of a good deal just gets me all excited and weird.
Anyway, next I glued the medallion to the ceiling with adhesive caulk.
Put some tape up to hold it in place.
Then I was too impatient to wait for my hubby to get home from work so I installed the light.
It works. I just love it. The whole fixture and medallion cost $12.50!!!
One more view!
In the last picture I replace the light bulbs with frosted ones. I like the look a lot better. What do you think? I also just bought a dimmer switch at Home Depot for $10. We are going to install that this week. Can't you just image taking a relaxing bubble bath under a the soft glow of this chandy? I can't wait to show you the whole bathroom!
