Look! New Bulbs Dress Up Ceiling Light

Many many moons ago, we wrote in to Apartment Therapy for help updating our ceiling light- our good question resulted in many great suggestions but we still weren't happy with the look of the fixture...

Then last weekend, we wandered into the Ace Hardware in Tenleytown, and found these lovely crystal bulbs. We took one look, and snapped up the only three 60 watt bulbs on the shelf! We love the look of the bulbs in the plasterwork when the light is off, and find ourselves enjoying the sparkles on the ceiling when the light is on. We hope to install a dimmer switch next week for the rare occasions when that light is necessary.

At $7 per bulb, these are expensive bulbs, but worth the investment to us as they will last years given our use of that light.
