Let’s see, where was I? It’s been a few months, so it’s hard to tell. The master bath has been in a paused state. There’s a couple of ways to go with it. Both involved new lighting fixtures, which was impossible to decide on. Going with a single light fixture would be extremely expensive for the size I needed. Going with two fixtures would involve extra wiring and replacement of the huge mirror.
I finally put forth the extra shopping effort and found a 48” LED light fixture that would compliment the other square LED lighting in the room. The light was $300, which is not bad considering the $700 lights I had been shopping.
With that decision complete, I now had to install an electrical box for the light. I used a “pancake” shallow box. I cut the hole for the box.
Fortunately my placement let me screw the box into existing furring strips.
Then it was a matter of patching up the holes I made.
I expected to get the patching, sanding and priming done by the end of the weekend. Yeah, right.
