Last weekend when we shopped for the new dishwasher, I decided that I wanted to purchase some new, updated-looking light fixtures for the upstairs hall bathroom. The new ones looked lovely and definitely would add some beauty to the powder room!
The hubby thought he would surprise me by installing them without bothering me for help...oh, yes he did! HOWEVER, I NOW need Tim the Toolman Taylor's pal, Al, to come and rescue the project gone wrong. My hubby didn't realize that he needed to cut the wire and the chain links on the fixture to the appropriate length...here is what we've got now (see pic below):
So until next weekend, when more time is alloted into our schedule, we'll have extra linkage and wiring hanging around to collect dust...
In my hubby's defense, there is nothing in the manual about trimming the wiring or links to the appropriate length. Did someone leave out a step when they wrote the manual? Perhaps. Lesson learned, measure, cut, and THEN hang. Here's hoping install of the second light fixture goes smoother than the first next weekend.
Thanks for trying to surprise me, Kev!
