All because of you..

Baking doesn’t really happen in my house. You see, I have a gas only range and it is much to harsh for delicate baking. So…when a friend decided to sell her dual fuel Viking range..We decided to jump back into remodeling. It has been some time since my husband has embarked on any real construction jobs around the house. Not having 220 in the kitchen is a bit of a challenge! Thus, the removal of ceiling sheetrock.

With gentle arm twisting and a promise of many delicious desserts baked in the “new” oven I am getting some actual surface mount lighting to replace the cheap and really ugly cans I had. I  prefer seeing surface mount fixtures in the ceiling rather than a bunch of down lights. Unlike typical canned lighting, this style of fixture illuminates the ceiling rather than the floor.

He is a real trooper! Spending the long weekend doing this:CIMG1167 CIMG1169










Here is what I am thinking for the new lighting:t_SL5151HAB-WG.jpg m_CHC4134A.jpg














Sorry the uploaded pictures are so lousy!  I would love to hear from you!! Which one do you like?

Hope the last day of the long weekend has you enjoying your day!
