We've had this dilemma for quite some time, and it took the keen observational skills of none other than JH to help us realize that a simple solution lay right in front of us.
Our house suffers a bit from being too dark, and I wonder some times if the previous owner had a thing for being in the dark. It's fitting if it's true, she is a rather somber individual, but that's beside the point.
The kitchen in particular is dark, with dark walls, dark wood cabinets, and an overall lack of bright lights. There are track lights that aren't the nicest things and don't really illuminate the place. We've wanted to replace them for some time but assumed that it required professional help.
Well, the other day JH was looking at it, and deduced that they could simply be removed and replaced. He even reached up and loosened the thing, then pulled it out. The guy is like Superman, though he might want to avoid the red tights.
Now we can maybe get new lights. Of course, I have to find a place that sells them, which could take another ten years, but at least there is hope, and I'll take it.
Until the next time, thanks for reading.
