The Boy surprised me by taking down our ratty exterior porch lights and installing the small FADO pendants while I was at work. I’m glad he did it since the front porch fixture had a fun surprise – an old hornet nest! I would have probably freaked out and fell off the ladder…good thing he kept a cool head and realized that there were no hornets in there, well except a few dead ones.
I didn’t get a chance to get before photos of the above craptastic fixtures installed- but I think you can infer how awesome they looked.
Here are the new FADO globe lamps installed. Impressively round.
This may be the first exterior change we’ve made since moving in. The exterior is in sad shape, so extremely sad that when the police stopped by to check on a complaint about a transient woman roaming around on our front porch (which turned out to be ME checking out our new porch light with my painting clothes on – jeeezzz how embarrassing) they thought the place was abandoned and were pleasantly surprised to find people actually living there – in style.
