Electrical Basics Wiring A Basic Single-Pole Light Switch

It has taken me a little longer than I thought, but I’m finally ready to show y’all how to wire a basic single-pole light switch. But first, a few explanations and caveats. First of all, please understand that I’m sharing this, along with the other few posts about electrical stuff, not because I’m hoping you’ll go out and rewire your entire house. In fact, I realize that many (probably most) of you won’t actually use this information yourselves. Or if you do ...


New Entry Light Fixture, Flooring Option, and Half Bathroom Wall Inspiration

Progress on the studio was slow but steady over the weekend. After much frustration, I finally got the walls painted. At least, I think they’re finished. Once the new light actually has power and the entryway has light, I might discover yet more areas that need touchup. But for now, I’m calling it done. But speaking of light fixtures, I made my decision on the light for the back entry. I went with immediate gratification and bought this light fixture from Lowe’s. And oh my gos...


Back Entry Wall Color, Studio & Back Entry Lighting Selections, And More

I made a wall color decision for the back entry, and the winning color is…GREEN! And, as you can see, the doors will be black. Things are still very much “in progress,” so they’re looking kind of rough at this point. But I have vision for it, and I’m very excited! I’ve been trying to work in a green, black and white color combo into my house since 2014. It’s a favorite combination of mine, and I realized that this was the perfect place for it. While I w...


My Electrical Scare (Plus, How To Rewire A Pendant Light)

Yesterday I showed y’all my brand new lighting in the studio. What I didn’t share was the behind-the-scenes story about an electrical scare that made me lose sleep the night before last. Fortunately I found the problem, and all I had to do was rewire a pendant light. But until I discovered the problem, I was kind of panicking. I spent about three hours on Monday installing the thin downlights that I showed you yesterday, plus everything else on that circuit so that I could at least ...


The Studio Has Lights! (Ultra Thin LED Recessed Lights)

Y’all, the studio finally has lighting!! This area hasn’t had lighting since it was a garage almost two years ago. The lighting all came down before the garage-to-studio conversion started, and it hasn’t had lighting (or electricity, for that matter) since. Any time I’ve needed to use tools or lights in here, I’ve had to run extension cords from the breakfast room. Well, not anymore! I installed ten of my new favorite lights — these ultra wafer thin LED downl...


Studio Painting Progress And A Slight Change Of Plans

I’ve finally started the pretty stuff in the studio! Well, that is, if painting is included in the “pretty stuff” category. It is, right I think it is. They finished all of the mudding and sanding in the studio on Friday, which meant that I needed to paint the ceiling this weekend so that they can install the ceiling fan for me today. (There’s no way I’m installing a ceiling fan by myself on a 12-foot ceiling, so I’m very happy they will do that for me.) So o...
