What was there before? I am glad you asked. It was a ceiling fan! Now, lets put aside that the ceiling fan was quite ugly but who ever thought a ceiling fan would be a good idea in a room where the ceilings are only seven feet tall! Not necessarily a decapitation hazard but still a bit dangerous.
Just a quick field trip to IKEA and we now have this beautiful over head light and a room that is bright enough to tell your navy blue and black sweaters apart:)
Happy New Year everyone - see you in 2011!
