Avenging a 1930s Lightolier Knock-Out
Like eight years ago I purchased a way cool 1930s light fixture by the fabulous Lightolier Company. It was in poor shape, so I took it apart to rewire, repaint, and refurbish.
And there it sat. Year after year after year.
On occasion I would pull out the box-o-parts from the storage shelf, look at the work needed to finish the restoration, sigh, and push the box back onto the shelf.
Year after year.
Yesterday I woke and thought: HOW long has that fabulous Lightolier been in storage?
The answer was too long.
Bad Ross. Baaaaaad Ross.
And, suddenly, I knew that the honor of the fabulous Lightolier needed to be avenged.
Now. That day.
It took till 2:o’clock this morning to get the fixture hung and lighted…and my heart burst out in song.
Scroll way down…
I crawled into bed, exhausted, but delighted.
And Bad Ross was just a tiny bit…less bad.
