K is for Kitchen Improvements

I have been looking at my dated florescent kitchen fixture for a while, thinking that it would be nice to have something a little prettier. It was just “blah,” plus the plastic cover was broken and cracked and held together with tape. When one of the florescent tubes burned out last week, necessitating a trip to the home improvement store anyway, my son volunteered to change out the  whole light fixture instead.

This is “before.” You can see the outline of the square fixture on the ceiling.


My new pretty chandelier out of the box.


The finished results. I loved the updated look.P1040486

But then the shiny brass chandelier over the table didn’t match. So I bought a replacement for it, too.


And here’s the second new fixture. I’m thankful that my son was willing to change out the fixtures for me and happy about the new look!

  1. I love how you had to make them match. That is so something I would have had to do. Looks like the Kitchen Improvements turned out well.

  2. Those are pretty! It's amazing how much such a simple switch does. And yay for a handy son!
