Let There be (Beautiful) Light

Yesterday we installed the new porch lamps. It's was a little bit challenging because of the narrow space on the left of the door. Thankfully the back plate fit perfectly, and snugly.
When I bought the house there was only one fixture on the left so I had another one installed on the right, but rather than tear open the walls, which wasn't in my budget at the time, I had them run the conduit on the outside up and over the top of the door. When painted it blends in well enough. But the electrical box protrudes from the siding so we had to figure out how to deal with that. I think the back plate covers it pretty well and the fixture is so pretty you really don't notice the rigged up mechanicals.

Here are a couple of pictures.

So nice! I have enjoyed watching your home "facelife," Susan. Thanks for sharing and letting others live vicariously through your rennovations. :)

Facelife seems appropriate somehow. It's exciting seeing the transformation. It's such a wonderful old house and we're so happy here.
