Remember the south hall in the Cross House that I was working on last fall?
After a lot of work I shifted focus to doing the library, and the hall, while much better than it was a year ago, remains unfinished.
Due to an AC trunk line I installed in 2014, the ceiling had to be lowered. There was no evidence of how the hall was lighted in 1894, so I installed a pair of ceiling lights, with cheap porcelain bases used for now.
For months and months I have been scouring eBay to find a pair of simple gas/electric pendants. Geez. Who knew it would be so hard? I even started looking at modern LED lights. But don’t tell anybody.
Last week I decided to take down the gas/electric pendant I had installed in the Butler’s Pantry a few years ago. It was too long and the cabinet doors banged into it all the time. Well, after I had it down I thought: Does this match anything I have stored way? I took it to my lighting stash and…gasp.
