Installing Kitchen Canned Lighting and a Small Update
Today Handy Hubby and his handy electrician friend worked on installing canned lighting in the kitchen! I have no pretty pictures for this and absolutely no expertise in this area. Pretty much all I will show you are a bunch of holes in the ceiling! But those holes mean progress!!
So the first thing they did was measure.... and measure again.... and measure again. Their motto - measure three times cut once. They actually used a jigsaw (in the last house hubby used a drill mounted hole saw). Either way the holes were cut and perfect!
Here is one of the lights installed (they scraped some of the texture to do this - not a problem since the popcorn starts to come down tomorrow!).
All four lights installed!
They also worked on installing a ceiling brace for the light that will be installed over the island.
All in all a successful day of work in the kitchen! Here is how we left it today...
And because I can't leave a post without something pretty in it. Here is a small update I worked on today!
Notice the stained glass above the door? It really had me fooled the first time I looked at the house. It's actually just a window film! It's a really genius idea, just not really my style. Thankfully it was an easier fix than replacing the entire window!
I was amazed at how much this changed the look/feel of the room! There is so much more light with it gone! Makes me want to do a happy dance!
And after! Look at the gorgeous view that was hiding!!
