shine on down


we needed more light, amanda cross-sitches, mostly on the couch. 2-3 lamps with 40-60watt bulbs still didn’t cut it. the natural white lights were an improvemet in color, but still weren’t enough. free-standing lamps are expensive and our couch is in the middle of the room. cord-tripping ensues. i thought about track lighting, but we rent so nothing permanent is the way to go.

we picked up some “hampton bay instant task lighting” from home depot (i’d post a link, but i can’t find the product.) 4′ of adhesive-backed track, (3) 20w bulbs, and a wall-outlet. we also picked up a foot-switch because the supplied twist-switch would get old after a while.

20 minutes later, much better. we have the direct brighter lighting amanda needs for her stuff. i have light i need to read over on the side. power consumption is only 60watts and light-output (lumens) is much higher. two lamps are pointed at the couch and one lamp at the shell chair (where i’m usually found)
