Patience pays off! So do connections!

 Our never ending kitchen remodel has been waiting on a few elements, one of which is a new ceiling fan/light fixture. We wanted to get a good one but just haven't had the funds to invest in anything worthwhile. Oh how I have loathed the sort of working, hideous fan we have. What a wonderful surprise when my brother in law, an electrician, got a hold of a fan from a home that was being demolished. As he was heading over here, I just kept praying that it wouldn't be ugly. Beggers can't be choosers, I know, but I really wanted it to match and look nice. Oh how blessed we are!
Here it is laying on the living room floor. It even has a remote! Talk about fancy. :)
Here they are taking down the yucky one.
And here they are putting it up! It matches the kitchen perfectly. It isn't super bright though, so we might switch it with the one in the front room which is really nice and very bright. Or we will look for a brighter bulb for this one. Eventually, when I save up the money, we are going to put 4 can lights in the kitchen. Oh how bright it will be!
I love FREE!!!
