Instead of buying each other gifts for Valentine’s Day this year, Travis and I decided to get something new for the house. We have really ugly light fixtures, EVERYWHERE. Lots of 90’s style gold with blonde wood.
We went to Lowe’s and picked out a new one to put in the living room! Travis and I both like dark wood with silver or bronze finishing.
I didn’t take a good “before” picture. This is the best one I could find (the day we took ownership of the house).
Travis surprised me at how good he was with the electrical work required to change a light fixture. I, on the other hand, was not very helpful.
I told Travis to smile for the blog. This is the look I get.
SInce Uno and I are not the most handy, we cuddled and occasionally handed Travis tools he needed.
I have the world’s best dog!
Getting closer! It was at this point Travis and I took a break to dance to “Beauty and the Beast” around the room. Since seeing Frozen last week, we have been on a Disney music kick and almost constantly listening to Disney on Pandora.
All done and it works!
It has bronze finishing. The blades are reversible as well. The other side has a more cherry colored wood.
This look SO much better than what was there before!
Happy early Valentine’s Day to my man! I love you so much! Thank you for everything you do, especially if it requires handy work around the house 🙂
