That's how I felt this morning at about 11:10am.
I took the Little Boy to preschool then went to Orange to look at some options for a project I've been mulling over for a few days now (you'll see...eventually). I didn't find what I really wanted, but I did figure some things out, so yay for my big brain.
Lately when I'm at a DIY store I've added 'cruising the lighting area' to my usual rounds (Flooring, rugs, the oops paint pile, clearance lumber, and that damned 569$ beautiful sliding compound miter saw that had me at 'hello'). Today I decided to just DO SOMETHING with the hideous kitchen island lighting. Husbeast is 6'4" and always bangs his head on it (seriously...we've lived here nearly 3 years and he somehow forgets weekly that there's a light there? But he can remember every exact detail of the first time he saw Raiders or Star Wars.)
After Husbeast and I talking about this light off and on over the past 34 months I knew we both could agree on brushed or satin nickel finish, really plain/simple. He wanted something pretty much flush to the ceiling, I would LOVE pendants. So whatever....I picked a light I could live with and away I went.
Fabulous, clever AND handy, yep ;) Maybe this will be a happy early father's day present for the beast?
/ETA - when the Little Boy got home from preschool and saw it the first thing he said after 'wow!' was 'Now Daddy won't hit his head anymore!'
/ETA2 - This is the fixture. I can't get over how much light it adds and how it opens up the kitchen.
