We found a "UFO" lamp cheap. We loved it but wife did not like color,
did not go with the kitchen so she repainted it and I re-wired. Photo of
complete lamp also shows one of the cornice's we built.
As soon as we put the chairs back together project will be complete.
Took exactly one month

It was just what the kitchen needed.
Sheesh, can't even remember how long ago it was when I had bell bottoms!
Retro seems to be back now...I see kids wearing retro-60's clothes and
laugh. The tie-dye shirts are mass-manufactured prints!

Normally I do everything half-assed and my wife insists on doing
everything right. This time, while I was re-wiring the lamp and fooling
with the retractor to get it working...my wife told me not to
bother...just leave it there for looks...once we get it up there will be
no need to raise and lower it
Just put the chairs in the kitchen so when the wife wakes up and comes
down for coffee it will be all complete.
Did not take a ton of photos but here are a few of the semi-completed
and here is one of wife working on it
After I posted, I added a "before" pix it shows me and my friend Carol
in the old kitchen
btw here is a photo of my wife when she is not in her work clothes
She usually goes around "fancied up"
She knows I post...ever since we first met I've always had a camera in
As a matter of fact she once sent a pix of me to a friend...and I was
eating like a slob.
Well, I alway eat like a slob but this one was especially bad...so bad I
was actually embarrassed.
She knew what she was getting into.
On our first dinner date (20 years ago) when she got up to use the
ladies room I finished all the food on her plate.
I'm now 66 years old and have only gained maybe ten pounds since the day
I got out of the Army back in 1971.
I eat so much I should weight 400 pounds though.
My metabolism must be pretty high as I eat almost continuously (rarely
go more than a couple hours without eating) and if it gets much over 70
degrees need to take my shirt off
