Sean has been transforming his white box of an apartment into a stylish and personalized home. In one of his recent blog posts Sean shows off this DIY bathroom lighting makeover that works around an existing awkward location in a creative way.
This lighting over the double basin sink in Sean's bathroom was unattractive - both as a light fixture and in the shadows it cast on the folks under it. Sean knew that he needed to center the lighting above the two basins but felt trapped by the central location of the junction box. After looking in vain for lighting in his price range, Sean finally decided to DIY it.
Sean made use of the central location of the junction box by creating two swag lamps. This moves the lighting from one central location above the mirror to hang over the two sink basins. And since that's where a person looking in the mirror would likely be standing, this lighting works much better.
