Our house was built in 2005.
6 years ago.
Not that long really as far as decorating trends, design choices and modern tastes are concerned.
Yeah well the people who built our house must have been living in a time warp. Or had horribly bad taste.
This was the light fixture in our dining room until yesterday. Not only was it ugly, it went through light bulbs like crazy.
What decade does that thing look like it came from?
We got tired of the ugly fixture and replacing bulbs every few weeks so yesterday I went shopping (thank you Home Depot for the 10% military discount).
And bought a Hunter fan that claimed to require only 5 minutes to install.
About an hour later, installation was complete.
The only problem?
Before replacing that dining room fixture, the other ugly fixtures in my house didn’t seem all that ugly – relative to the dining room. Now, compared to this shiny new modern light & fan, they are AWFUL.
I guess I’m going shopping again.
