|The original line and box, with the new|
line for the light coming out of the top.
Not documented was an additional connection that needed to be made to splice this into the line in the basement.Now, onto the pictures of the ceiling fixture installation!
|More holes had to be drilled for the line, and a junction box|
had to be placed to make the connection (and support the light).
We found the fixture on Etsy. It came to us all the way from Paris! I'd had my eye on it for some time, but since we weren't in a rush to mess with the electrical, I stalled on buying it. However, sometime last year, I noticed that it was on sale. Half Off! So, I snapped that baby up! It's been waiting patiently to be connected ever since! Thanks to Etsy seller LunaPurPurie
|Attempting to connect the fixture's wires to our new wire.|
|Gary is not very good at using the camera on Nate's phone...|
|The room is spinning!|
|There wasn't a lot of wire to work with,|
so it took longer than anticipated.
|Completed hanging, and a test bulb to make sure it works.|
|Light switch plate added.|
Nate had to go out and find the half chrome bulbs that are necessary for this fixture. So, here they are, installed, and below, with the fixture turned on!
|Isn't she lovely?|
