We had another big thing done to our house. This was the boring job of replacing some remaining old electrical wiring. Something great resulted unexpectedly. Sconces!
Before we had this hideous broken light fixture overhead on the front porch.
This was on old wiring and the electrician thought he would be able to replace the wiring. We purchased a new light to replace this one. However when he attempted to do so, he realized it was near impossible to get through some beams.
Then he said he could do sconces are each side of the front door. This looks way classier and goes with the period of the house beautifully!
Another thing that concerned us was electrical wires outside with tree branches sitting on them. If we lost power, I would be out of business! So we called the electric company and they sent out their tree service to clean it up.
We did get left with the trees since their only job is clearing the lines.
Luckily they came out when they did because a problem of burnt wire was discovered due to the friction of the branches on the lines. So the same day the electric company came out and replaced all our wiring outside. This work was all free to us. Well not really free since we pay quite a bit for electricity each month!
No more electrical worries inside or outside!
We added flowers for some color. I'm so happy with the black and white porch!
Jim has been super busy with ceiling fans. A total of 5!
This is my office one. I'm not a huge fan of the exposed bulbs (kind of ugly and a dust magnet) but I need as much light as possible to come from the fixture.
Then for the bedrooms we chose to put the same one in each of them.
The brushed nickel goes perfectly with the radiators' finish combining antique with modern comfort.
I am impressed by everything we have done so far since we have only been here for 5 months. This includes the roof, chimney, electrical, ceiling fans and lots of little projects.
Thank you for stopping by! Wishing you a great week ahead. ~Val
