The idea was to add some recessed lights overhead so I can see what the hell I'm doing! I boxed out a little drop down ceiling over the counter area and I can wire the new lights right into the existing ones situated on either side of the counter so they all operate off the one switch.
I did the wiring last night and everything works great! First time I ever installed new electrical work like this before so I spent the rest of the night patting myself on the back for a job well done! Many thanks to Door Tree enthusiast Davey Wavey for his advice on the wiring configuration!
Let there be light!!!
This pic doesnt really show the difference like it is in real life but it is already like a totally different room now. The front panel up above will have cedar paneling all the way across and the side walls will as well. I ordered 8 rolls of wallpaper the other day (that in itself will be a new definition of pain and suffering for me!) for the rest of the room and I've also decided to scrape that nasty popcorn crap off the ceiling and repaint it smooth. Those long blocks of wood residing where the slanted wall meets the new ceiling are what will hold the header board that the mirror apparatus will eventually attach to. It sure is in an "Ugly Stage" right now though!
