I like to think my husband and I understand each other pretty well. I’d hope after 10 years we would. But there is one subject on which we disagree and he just does. not. understand where I’m coming from. And that subject is overhead lighting. If it’s at all glaring or bright or casts weird shadows I absolutely cannot stand it. I completely refuse to turn on the overhead light in my office because it lets off this horrible bluish flourescent light that washes everything out and casts dark horrible shadows. I will walk across the dark room to turn on a lamp rather than use it. Whereas Aa will turn it on so he “can see” and so he “can find things”. Like “seeing” is important! (*insert winking emoticon here) But really, what good is seeing if you feel like you’re in an operating room and the room is suddenly sallow and depressing? I completely agree with David Sedaris on this one, bad overhead lighting is just the worst!

Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t generally have an issue with well placed can lights or a nice fixture. In fact, although I don’t like the shape, the one in our dining room isn’t all that bad because you can dim it slightly so it’s not so glaring. It can be done. And because we’re in a constant battle of turning the overhead lights on and off, Aa suggested I start looking for some replacement fixtures. An excellent idea! So today I’ve found you some Awesome DIY Light Fixtures that could possibly even convince me to turn them on!15 Awesome DIY Light Fixtures | littleredwindow.com
