Playing God

A few weekends ago, we played God and created light!

Ok, not really but it was fun to say, “Let there be light!” as we changed the two ugly light fixtures in our upstairs hallway.  During our ceiling fan extravaganza at Lowe’s we found a box set of two boob lights (not their official name but they look like boobs) and decided to spend the money since it was a drop in the bucket compared to the bajillion fans we bought.

Then they sat on our living room floor for weeks until we started organizing the living room.  We thought it wouldn’t take too long to install them but we’ve said that before and the DIY Gods come down and curse us with a project that will never end.

We unwrapped the lights and brought the step stool upstairs, only after turning the power to the lights.  Greg unscrewed the old light fixture and breathed a sigh of relief when we found a box in the wall!

While he was working his engineering magic, we realized cargo shorts are the way to go if you don’t want to wear a tool belt.  They have enough room to hold everything.

He worked on both lights at the same time, finish step one at light A before moving on to step one at light B.

Less than 60 minutes later, Greg created a great set of boobs in our hallway!

After Greg installed the lights, he wanted to keep them on to make sure they worked.  I kept running upstairs every 30 minutes or so to make sure there wasn’t any electrical fire going on because I had my roommate’s wedding dress in a room next to the hallway light.  Five days before the wedding was not a good time to have it burn down.

I’m happy to report the lights work and the dress didn’t burn down.
