So, the electricians are back downstairs, running wires, cutting holes, and troubleshooting the nightmare of our electric service. The kitchen lights are in (w00t!), a major triumph, and the living room baseboard is going in as we speak. However, the $10 deep-discount hanging lights we bought for the dining room turned out to be 40-watt duds which only take mini bulbs. So they’re going to put in a single worklight over the table on a new dimmer and I’ll replace it with a chandelier when we actually find something we like.
Pictures of my kitchen cieling to follow.
