Upstairs Guest Bath Part Two

This bathroom was a mess when we moved in. Maybe even a hot mess.

First,we painted the vanity area and the water closet. (Read about the first steps here.) The paint went a long way to making this room tolerable...

But no amount of paint can hide this horrible 1980s light fixture.

(Yes, there are two of these glass cylinders swagged from a center point.)

Hearing that we are having some Birmingham friends up for the weekend in a few weeks served as a catalyst to get this room suitable for guests.  Off to the hardware store we went!

The light fixture was hung from a single junction box in the ceiling centered over the vanity, so we had to either find a fixture that could be hung from the ceiling, or patch the ceiling and move the fixture to the wall.

I originally thought we would get two wall sconces to flank the framed mirror I haven't found yet.

Then I saw this ceiling-mount...

...antique-style milk glass and ceiling-mount?!? Yes, please. 

My sweet hubs hung it this afternoon, and I think it fits nicely.

I love that the style is reminiscent of an old schoolhouse light.

The fixture freshens up the room a bit, which makes me really want to do something about that mirror... another day.

Happy Easter!

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his woulds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
