Well, the move happened. I am settling into my new abode. I forgot how much work is involved in moving and I am exhausted! I have a lot more work cut out for me. Although I lucked out in getting such a large space (hello, you had me at walk-in closet) that is located downtown in a clean, quiet building, it is an old apartment and it does require some cosmetic T.L.C.
First order of business – the dining room light fixture. The lighting fixture looked like it fell out of the ugly tree and hit all the branches on the way down. This eyesore lasted a total of 48 hours in my domain.
I trekked off to IKEA to purchase a fixture that had caught my eye on a previous outing. Although I am quite a handy chick, when it comes to plumbing and lighting I draw the line. Luckily The Fella has electrical acumen and lovingly offered to swap out the fixture for me.
The light fixture came with an extremely long chain - The Fella shortened it for me to hang at an appropriate height.

Hmm...could re-purpose this for naughty things....
A world of difference!
