It's taken 2 weeks to get this far, even though this is only the second day I've worked on it. Ha. Back when I installed the spotlights in my own living room, I decided that I would be happy to never drill through a ceiling joist again as long as I live.

So in Dawn's case, these lights are not going in the ceiling. They are going to come out the front of the bookcases. I'm using the same wiring concept that I used on my living room, since she's got 2 outlets on this wall to work from.

So we are wired and ready for lights. We can now install cabinets. As soon as I build the rest of them. :)

Inspiring pictures of cute spotlighting:

(My new favorite designer, Craig Kettles. I'm in love. Which means he's probably married or gay. or both.)

Check out these library spotlights:
(from Pinterest and I have no idea where the original came from.)

I like this simple picture lighting :

We'll see what Dawn decides to go with!

  1. Wow, that is a lot of work, but so amazing. Hugs, Marty

  2. I love your professional wiring diagrams. You should print that, and frame it for her to put on her new/shelving.: -)


Welcome to my three ring circus. Cake? Tequila? Pardon me while I cut this lumber and yell at my kids for the 100th time --

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!

I don't do ads/affiliate marketing/ guest posting/reviews for free product, etc. The only exception to this would be if Bob Vila asks me to do something (anything). ;)
