Bright Ideas and Clear Thinking

Before
Not everything from the 70s in our house was awful. There are a couple light fixtures in the hallway that are actually pretty cool. As you can see above, they are mostly clear with a crackled glass look. The only problem was the ugly CFLs inside. We lived with the lights like this for far too long.

A trip to Home Depot and $2 later, we had nice, clear bulbs installed. We also cleaned the globes for good measure. They aren't the most efficient bulbs, but they are halogen, so they're allegedly 30% more efficient than standard incandescents, and those lights aren't actually on that much. It's a small change, but it was well worth the effort.
