The last thing I wanted to do for my island redo was change the light fixture .
After pricing the light fixtures I liked I decided I didn’t need to spend the money on a new light fixture right now . It would have to wait .
But I’m not good at waiting…
So I thought , why not change the one I had so at least it would be something different to look at ?
You remember I had this fixture that had a pot rack on it …
I didn’t hang pots on it cause they were in the way , always right there in your face. So what good is a pot rack if you don’t use it ? And I wanted something a little more industrial looking .
So I called my sis to come over and hold on to it while I took in down.
Then I proceeded to take it apart.
I cleaned it up and painted it.
I wasn’t paying much attention when I took it down as to how it was wired.
It was heavy and I was hurrying so Pam wouldn’t have to hold it over her head to long .
Because it has a pull chain and was not connected to a light switch , it didn’t go back together as easy as it came apart . I ended up taking the fixture down to a local electrical supply store and having them show me how to wire it back.
Then Pam came over and held it again while I wired it back up.
And here is what it looks like now.
No pot rack in the way !
And all for the cost of a can of spray paint .
It will do till I find a fixture I like better . I sure like it better than how it was .
