What I Shed Today

lightening up a little at a time

– (not very) light fixture

on September 29, 2015

What I shed today is about lightening up … today we took our mission in a slightly different sense. Let me illumine you.…

Our home’s stairwell and small landing at its top have been only faintly lit by a rather puzzling choice of fixture that uses US E12 bulbs—the same as those in nightlights.

No

No “sink cost fallacy” is going to keep us from shedding this lamp.

Not only were we underwhelmed by its performance, we couldn’t muster any appreciation for its carriage-lamp style. So today we stopped cursing the dark and installed aircraft landing strip lights in its place.

Please forgive the odd stacks of building materials; we're re-modeling. At least now you won't trip over them in the dark!

Hiya! Please forgive the odd stacks of building materials; we’re re-modeling. At least now we won’t trip over them in the dark!

I feel badly giving away something so lame, but perhaps someone renovating a haunted house will think the old light is a great find. To the used-building-materials thrift store it goes.

shedding style: give away
destination: Habitat for Humanity ReStore

Comments welcome … might some different lighting, er, fixture you up, too?
