Isn't she a beaut? I think it went perfectly with the ceiling herpes. Needless to say, this light fixture did not fit into my decor ideas, so I took it down.
And unfortunately, underneath the fixture was a sad sight:
Broken plaster was heaved around the ancient light box. And of course, the box was too small to fit my new light fixture. I had the electrician that installed my bedroom chandy install the light for this room as well, because I have better things to do than go ripping out electrical boxes and swearing all day. Even though I had professional help with the light, I knew the ceiling needed to be addressed. I had to use a medallion because I really didn't have the means to fix the plaster. However, I wasn't sure how a medallion would look with the more modern track-style light I had purchased for the room, so I thought about my options.My solution was to paint the medallion to look like part of the light, instead of keeping it the more formal white color. The fixture is bronze, so I had to get a little creative to match it up with the spray I had laying around the basement. I started off with a oil-rubbed bronze spray, and it was way off:
So then I sprayed the entire thing black and added a little of the bronze spray over the top. I think it matched up really well!
And here is how it looks now:
I think the matching medallion is pretty cool. I can't wait for the spotlights to actually be lighting up something on those walls! The light is made by Urbino, and is available on Menard's Special Order website, here. I paid $60 for it at my local store. I love it!
