There are several things around our house that need fixed and upgraded. Robert decided it was time to work on two of them so he talked with some friends with the knowledge and got to work. First Robert and I went and picked out a fan and light to go in the living room. Since it clashed with the old dining room chandelier we decided to get an updated chandelier that would match the fan. By the time we were done we ended up getting new fixtures for all the rooms in the house except the bathrooms and kitchen. Our friend Terry Tucker came to install all of the lights. As he was getting ready to install the fan, he realized that it would hang to low to be safe. So I headed to Lowe's to return the fan and get a new one. I could not find a fan that met all the criteria that Robert had as well as matching the new chandelier. So I headed over to Home Depot and tried again. I found one fan that would work if I changed out the glass, but when I checked with an associate he said that the motor on the fan was huge and would hang down quite low as well. He helped me find a fan that would be close, but not quite match. I needed to buy new glass for it and then hurried home so we could get it installed.
Terry worked really hard to get the fan in and it looks great! He was also working on installing a new outlet in the garage to plug in the garage opener. This will make it so we don't have to run an extension cord all over the garage to have the garage opener work!
Next he headed off to change out the chandelier. It was nice to move out of the 80's and into the 21st century!
Then Terry replaced all the fixtures in the family room, hall, and bedroom. The family room, halls, and boys room all have the antique bronze fixture.
Now the concrete board is up and waiting for Robert and I to go pick up the tile. It will be fun to pick out some beautiful tile to transform our bathroom (and make it so it can be used). I am excited to see how it will turn out!
