Library lighting


To install the Ray Storey floor lamp, I made one of my usual faux wall outlets from copper card stock.  I finished the wire with a false plug, added a receptacle cut from stickers from HBS, and ran the wire up the outside.

The ceiling lamps on the first floor are new old stock ceiling light kits by Illinois Hobbycraft.  I spray painted the metal rings Krylon Antique Bronze.  They are wired with LEDs from Evan Designs.

Since I put the wallpaper in prior to installing the ceiling board, I needed some small crown molding to finish the upper edges.  I stained this Minwax Driftwood to coordinate with the other finishes.

Brae you do such amazing detailed work.  That cord and outlet are just perfect.  Love your lighting and paint as well.
