Bright idea

I can see clearly now the rain cloud is gone!

This. 
this cloud light.
this fluorescent cloud light.
has finally evaporated.


Well, not really evaporated.
but it IS g.o.n.e.
and I'm doin' the happy dance! 


 Mr. D gave me the gift of his time as a birthday gift
taking last Friday off work
to do this project for me!


this man worked all day installing 3 pendant lights

   

and risking his very life


snaking wires 


he even installed one of my favorite electrical features
the dimmer switch

  

Friday:  lights are up


Saturday:  cutting the Mason jars for the "shades" 

 

after several tries, we have some shades!



and the B-E-A-U-TIFUL
finished project!

    Wow... so happy for you! I have the same "cloud" dragging down my kitchen and it has been a thought in action to replace it. If Kirk can survive the project, there is hope that Matt will too. The wheels are spinning :)
