Hanging light fixture … in the literal sense. And in all honesty, we more just moved the light fixture, but you get the point. hanging light fixture 9See, in the renovation of our stairway (there’s an end in sight folks, I promise), I realized I hated how one of the two new light fixtures looked in its current position. Hated it. But you know me, I’m not one to complain. 😉 And because my husband finally agreed with me, or the more likely scenario, got tired of my asking when we/he could move the light, he spent a large portion of his Saturday doing just that.  Hanging light fixture 3 hanging light fixture 4He moved the light fixture – it matches the one already hanging over the landing of the staircase – to the center of the stairs leading up to our bedroom.
