Master Bedroom Coming Together, Laundry Room On Deck

The master bedroom was the first major room to be redone and it’s taken much longer than expected.  But that’s ok because it was just done in small blocks of time and effort.  Yesterday, I ordered the bed frame – king size – and today, I ordered the new mattress – Purple.  This will hopefully be a great experience when it’s done.

In the meantime, I need to plan out the wardrobes for the master closet.  I initially thought it would be extremely easy, but the more I work at it, the more difficult it becomes.  It’s funny, you see the empty closet and you say “that’s a huge closet”, then when you try to plan out some wardrobe frames, there’s suddenly not enough room.

And, I want to get started with the next room, which will probably be the laundry.  The laundry was going to be first room, but a desire to have a fresh living environment (or just sleeping environment) took precedence.

The laundry room suffers the most from a failing ceiling light.  It’s been quite a while that the fluorescent ballast starting going bad and I wasn’t convinced to spend the money on a new one.  First, T12 lights are discontinued.  I didn’t want to start investing in T8 bulbs if I was going to redo everything as LED.  So, I just let it continue to flake out.  The light output is probably about 50% and flickers like mad.

In order to start that process, I needed to have a plan for a new light.  I remembered my mantra: “only quality.”  And I wanted to have unique pieces, things you couldn’t just go out and buy from Home Depot.  Well, after a lot of searching, I found a unique LED light, but it is available at Home Depot.  It’s the Pixi Flatlight Luminaire.


It’s only 1/2” thick.  It’s LED.  It’s square (actually 1’x4’ is the one I want). It’s not cheap.  Sounds perfect.  I can get it from Amazon in two days.
