Master Bath Reno- Part 6- Light Selection

Good bye Hollywood...... Hello engery star lighting!  I am so excited to say sahari to the old brass Hollywood lights that just about everyone has in at least one of their bathrooms.  Hollywood served it's purpose, but everything has a shelf life, and it's life has come to a close.                                                              Before
Choosing a replacement lighting option was a bit more challenging than I thought it was going to be.  I searched all the local hardware stores, and your usual suspects online.  I wanted to choose something that had an Energy Star rating with straight lines that was well priced.  Luckily, after about my third week of shopping, I stumbled upon the below option at Lowe's.  It is one of their new options on the floor, and I was excited to find two available for purchase.
Installing the lights were relatively easy once we were able to center the lights on the wall.  The challenge part came in when we needed to repair the giant holes in the walls left by where Hollywood had left it's mark.  Lots of spackling and sanding involved, but it was well worth it.
The bathroom project is coming together quickly.... Look for an update on paint this weekend. :)
