We’re on the final push finishing the basement. It’s a whole new level of excitement. Back at the beginning of the summer I bought the light fixtures. The 2 sconces and the pendant for the nook. We installed the sconces after we painted, but the nook wasn’t ready for the new light. So it sat in storage.
As we finished the bead board in the nook, it was time to switch out the fixtures. The rest is obvious. LOOK AT THE SCALE. It is awful. Somehow, this escaped me. It’s such a dinky light fixture. It is definitely something that cannot hold its own. If it were to ever get in a bar fight, it would be cowering under the counter. It would DEFINITELY not be standing up for itself. So I’m back to the drawing board to find another fixture. Bla… Scale is hard.
In other basement happenings, we are going to be covering these studs to look like pillars of reclaimed wood. Sounds easy enough, right?
Wrong. We’ve got some weird geometric stuff happening with the sheetrock. The pictures don’t really show the actual issue. But they are all on different planes. We *think* we have a solution. But I’ll probably find some wonderful way to mess it up. Seems to be the running trend as of late.
If any of you have figured out how to package up some motivation, could you please send it to me?
