Yesterday was a pretty monumental day for our guest room and office space in the basement. We replaced the two outdated lights (that left a lot of dark spots in the room) with five pot lights. It has made such a difference:
Don't mind our dusty floor--lots of ceiling debris that still needs to get swept up. As a refresher, here's what the room looked like less than two months ago:
The lighting was as harsh as the black splattered paint on the walls. We'll be sharing all of the details of our new lighting next week on True Value's facebook page in our ongoing mini series, but we did want to let you know that we had some help with this project. A LOT of help.
As DIYers, we are always up for a new challenge, but when it comes to electrical work (I would say plumbing, too) it's just not worth the risk for us. We couldn't be happier with the work that Black Diamond Electric did. They fished wire through our ceiling without making any unnecessary holes which we were told would have to happen. They also noticed there was something in our breaker box that was loose, so they fixed that, too. And replaced all the plug and light sockets in the room because they still had black paint splattered on them. !!! So thorough! We went with their recommendation and had the lights put on a dimmer which is nice (and intimate as Chris would say).
When we do work with a product or person that is exceptional, we like to pass their information along, so if anyone in Utah is looking for an electrician--we highly recommend Black Diamond Electric.
Stay tuned for more details on the whole lighting process next week. Happy Weekend, friends!
