So on Saturday morning I set out to install it. I looked up "how to install a bathroom light" online and felt pretty good about it. After turning off all of the breakers in the house (hey, you can never be too careful) I started taking my old light down. While my old light let off a bright glow, it reminded me too much of Hollywood makeup lights...not my style.
I had just unscrewed the light bulbs, pulled the faceplate off, and was about to undo the wiring when the Handyman called me from work. When I told him I was replacing the light in the bathroom, he asked me to wait until he got home. I assured him that I had things covered, and the power in the entire house was off, but I guess I wasn't too convincing. He knew I could do it, but wanted to make sure someone was there, just in case.
So a few hours later, he got home and we worked on it together. I will admit, I was a little nervous about the wiring, but seriously, it was a piece of cake!
After touching up the paint, it was done and I LOVE how it turned out!
P.S. Notice the frame around the window and the new paint color in the bathroom? I'll post about that soon!
