Shortly after I arrived back in NYC with the light, I asked the super when he’d be able to install it. After a minor scheduling hiccup, he came over yesterday to help.
It didn’t take me very long to reassemble the light.
This was the old light in the dressing room. It didn’t even have a shade!
Taking it down wasn’t very difficult, but we did run into an issue when one of the screws in the box was rusted into the box itself.
The super’s solution was to drill a hole through the top of the box, and put a screw through that! Which was a much easier solution than the other idea I had–install a new box.
Things were going along fine, until it came time to fit the canopy.
See the gap (the silver threads showing)? He wouldn’t let that stand! So down it came, and he cut the threads down by over a half inch. Then back up it went!
It’s hard to get good pictures of it, but it’s beautiful! Such a nice and regal addition to the small space.
