What's A Girl To Do? (Part 2 In a Series)

What's a girl to do when she's tired of looking at these....?

...she finds this....
...flips one of these...
...removes these...
...and these...
..looks at this....takes a deep breath and....
..hangs these....



One pair of thrift store finds...50 dollars.
One pair of trembling hands (and lots of wires)...0 dollars.
Replacing a set of light fixtures without the help of Mr. PML....Priceless!


Oh Happy Day!!
Avec Amour,

  7. Truly priceless! Way to go Michelle - I have been so tempted to do something like that but very intimidated - I had issues with Grade 10 Physics - the electricity part! You make it sound pretty easy and I love the change!

  9. You are simply amazing. I work for electrical contractors and I wouldn't have had the courage to do that! :) I am so proud of you. And of course, those chandeliers are gorgeous and what a find. Make a nice dinner under those babies and relax.
