…And here is a view of what our hallway lights look like in the evening… There is a third school house pendant in the upstairs corridor to complete the look. Thanks again Ashby Interiors for all your kind assistance throughout the process.
Its actually not this dark at all, but in order to show the bright light fittings as clearly as possible I took a low light level shot. When the pendants are off, and there is just the warm glow from our 40W refurbished gas light however, this is how it looks.
When either Alex or I are out late with friends or at work and the other has gone to bed, we leave on the old gas light (now wired electrically) so we don’t have to come home to a dark house.
Although we stripped off all the paint on the gas light bracket, the original metal finish is rather scratched and uneven, and so we are working on a solution to rectify that – so that’s why I haven’t shown it to you up close yet.. but watch this space!
