One of the first endeavors was removing a glass-light-thingy from the bathroom ceiling fixture. I don't have a "before" shot. Just trust me. It was ugly. And I figured (a) it couldn't be any uglier if I removed it (b) by removing the glass-thingy I was forcing myself to actually upgrade really soon, and (c) maybe in the meantime it could pass as "industrial chic".
But here's the thing: It ain't chic. It's a light bulb.
And like so many other things, our eyes got used to it. The bare light bulb just sat there.
But gosh-darn, it's time to make some changes around here.
I considered several options:
- Simple flush-mount ceiling light? It would do the job. It would be cheap. But it would also be boring.
- How about a truly industrial light -- like these from West Elm?

- Or push the envelope for our little bathroom, and install a plush chandelier?

I'll share the plans for one I purchased (including a new paint job) soon!
