My bad. I meant to keep you informed of all the changeroonies in the basement but then I didn’t.
Errg. I hate when I do that.
Forgive me? Me so sorry. Seriously though…I will try to give you all the basementy goodness in between all my regular halloweenie postings. haha. if you know me, you know what I’m laughing at.
Anyhoo. Here’s our basement layout…the stars represent the new lighting that we installed in preparation for my sister’s wedding.
Remember these two scrollie bajobbies?
They were taken from the recent upstairs kid’s bathroom makeover and the hallway between our master closets and turns out, they are like fraternal twins…not exact but if you are old, hard of seeing or a perv with a twin fetish, these look exactly the same.
And seeing as how they were just hanging out in the workroom waiting for death to come upon them, I decided that we could use them and save a buck! Enter ORB…aka: God’s gift to blogkind!
The finish was crazy bad.
A few coats later, these hookers were real lookers 🙂
I’ve waited a long time to say that line…
Sorry about the crazy photos…it’s difficult to get a good photo when the light is on…but go figure, when it’s off, I’m kinda taking a photo in the dark 🙂
Don’t ask about them spots on the ceiling. Our home’s previous owner (whom we call Napoleon) is one crazy dude.
Back to the layout – next up is the entertainment room.
As you may remember, this room had lots of natural light as well as some pocket lights. Those recessed lights made us wonder if we actually needed more light fixtures (there were two exposed electrical boxes and corresponding light switches). After some extensive testing (we turned the lights on…then off…then on again. it was very strenuous.), we decided that we didn’t need any more lights…just circulation.
The windows were the final call for it. If Hotlanta lived up to its names, then we would definitely benefit from some additional airflow. So Farmington 52 inch ceiling fans (note they have no lights) were installed.
I kinda love the fact that they have reversible blades – and they were CHEAP. I started them out on the lighter blades – to warm things up and to balance out that crazy orangey floor tiles.
In the backside of the house & the two bedrooms we were sorely lacking lights…
So we sprung for some boob lights. THE SHAME.
Yes, we, like Heidi Montag, fell victim to the NEW BOOB SYNDROME.
Unlike our Barbie-a-fied friend, we got ours for cheap. Twenty bones for two boobs. That sounds gross and not like a home improvement sentence at all.
In the bathroom, we also got a new light for over the vanity (more on that vanity news later).
I have a little issue though now. I don’t love it. I love the glass. I love the fixture. I just don’t love them together in this room. So I think I may be exchanging the glass shades for something more opaque. What do you think?
So there it is – all of our light updates in the basement so far. Anyone else out there getting new fixtures or ceiling fans or anything lately? Anyone getting new boobs? 🙂 Yup…just went there.
