I Light Up My Life

I spent close to a year looking at this nightmare of a light fixture as I fell asleep each night.
It was not good for my soul.

Dear boss gave me an old 5 light fixture, probably from the 20s.
The original polychrome paint job was lost under a few coats of gold spray paint.

I sandblasted it, and buffed it to a lovely shine:

And of course I put it on a dimmer. Life is good.

So purty Jake!
A minute ago this blog was down and I got really worried. I mean, I just found it! That would be so unfair!
I am going to San Antonio tomorrow. Do you want a coonskin cap? I bet I could get one there.
