Master Bath Update

Finally, we have been making some progress on our master bathroom.  Remember the last update? 

About a month ago I found this great chandelier at my local Goodwill.  It was only $10!!!  The wires were just hanging out of the top not marked and just cut looking.  I made sure I could return it if it didn't work and went ahead and bought it.  I had a feeling my husband would be a little less than thrilled about the new project he was now assigned. 



When I bought the light it never registered to me that where we would be hanging it was wired for a can light and not a hanging light.  Whoops.  More work for the hubs.  Luckily, they make can light converters so we bought one of those and then also needed a to cover the hole and wires. 

Model R4 for 4" Can Conversion

Apparently he had to rig it quite a bit to make it work.  I don't know what I would do without him! 

Here it is in all it's shining glory!



Costs:
Chandelier- $10
Can light converter kit- $45
light plate thingy-$6
Total:$61

Still To Do:
- hang a chandelier over the tub
- frame in the mirror
- make curtains
- hang curtains
- hang 2 shelves, 1 on each side of the sinks to get stuff off of the counters (drives me bonkers!)
- get new hand towels
- replace white candles by tub with brown candles
