My mom had found a chandelier she wanted for the foyer. It should have been changed 12 years ago when we moved into the house. You can see from the picture it's a yucky, gold builder grade light. This is probably why it hasn't been switched out:
Looks a little scary, right? I couldn't even watch him while he was on the ladder. At one point, I needed to hold his hand so he could get a farther reach with the other arm.
I asked, "What happens if my hand slips?"
His response was, "Well, I will fall over the banister and to the ground."
He seemed very calm like it was no big deal. I on the other hand got nauseous every time I looked up and my hands started profusely sweating as I held his hand for dear life.
It's all done now and made a huge difference. Like I said, this should have been done YEARS ago.
We are headed back to Ohio tomorrow night and hopefully will have our own house updates soon!
