YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE
I met an electrician today and wanted to slap him across the face when he gave me a quote to install two lighting fixtures for a client. After telling him my long-winded story of plug-in chandeliers I use over and over, I clued him in and showed him out! The two bedrooms above use the same inexpensive, incredibly easy technique for installing a chandelier...a plug-in kit from a hardware store or Ikea for under $15 and the lampshade of your choosing (the black one on top I use all the time from Ikea is only $15). No potential shock from doing it yourself or stinky electrician to worry about, just a sassy lampshade hanging from your ceiling and a job well done! So, the next time someone gives you a ridiculous quote, quote me and tell them to get lost!
