I finally got so sick of our ugly entryway boob light that I HAD to do something about it. I bought some spray primer & satin nickel spray paint a while ago, meaning to just spray over the bright shiny fake brass to tide us over till we bought something we liked. That was more than 6 months ago and this is what the light has looked like since then -
Yeeeeeah...I never got around to it, total shocker I know. Finally I was inspired to do it, probably because the Wino Family Kitchen Light turned out so well ;) I removed the fixture this morning, then Little Boy and I went to Lowe's to look at some other things (flooring, shop vacs, what-have-you...I just like to go there when I am down or don't feel well...it perks me up. The endless possibilities! It's my happy place.).. While we were there I looked at the light one of my friends installed in their entry (chandelier type..we also have one of those that needs replacing which is why I was browsing!). Sadly, I decided the Husbeast wouldn't like it. BUT! Since I was there I looked at the Boob Lights. I found a 2 pack of very inoffensive satin nickel boobs for 19$! NINETEEN DOLLARS??! I know! I mean, you CAN pay way more for them, but these were double the light output, slightly wider, and not as tall. Also, so freaking cheap! I decided to buy them and if the 'Beast liked them I'd install.
Well, he didn't gag, so up one went ;)
So much better, amiright?!
I'm thinking I'll use the other around the corner where we have one of those little dome hallway lights outside the powder room. Or I could sell it on CL, I suppose. Maybe for 20$ ;)
/ETA - Used the spare light for the entry at the garage door, right outside the powder room. It WAS a regular little white dome light, but when we moved in the movers accidently smashed the cover. So it's just been a bare bulb since then. Yes, nearly 3 years :(
