A New Light Fixture In The Stairwell
I shared in that post that we’ve been in our house over a year and a half and still had 6 (!!) light fixtures on the first floor alone that needed to be addressed. With 4 of those 6 having no light fixture at all! I knew we still needed a few lights, but I guess I never realized I had so many that were unfinished. Seeing this number gave me the motivation I needed to start making progress getting these “naked” light fixtures covered.
First on the list? A new light fixture in the stairwell!

Installing Our New Fixture
Unfortunately, I had to hire an electrician to install this fixture because I don’t own a ladder that would reach this tall ceiling. I wish I had picked this fixture out when my kitchen contractors were here because I probably would have saved money having them install it the same day they wired the new box.
Note to self for next time around.
Now I have no choice but to focus on the fact that the new light fixture is up and has become the perfect focal point when we enter from the mudroom door. It’s perfect for the space!
