Whistle While You Work

yuck
 
During Dirk’s naps I try to capitalize and get mini-cleaning projects done around the house.  Basically the no-fun-not-even-Gabe-wants-to-do-it projects.  So our fan and light fixture has made me cringe each time I see it.  So I try not to look…. but it is in the family room.  Seriously, it is old flecked white and brown embellished light fixtures…. YUCK.  So I thought I would remove them and figure out a way to make them decent enough.  I scrubbed them with dawn for over two hours and BAM- they look quite lovely.  My arthritis is killing me- but the family room is basked in a nice white glow.  Hard work does pay off.

Notice the one, that one in the back? Yea I wanted to see the difference my aching hands were making.  Crap cell phone shot but still.  Imagine brown tinged glass, made pearly white.  PERFECTION.  Note: I did submerge the glass fully in the water because I have no idea if the flecks I was scrapping off were dangerous to be inhaled…. Please be careful.
