Changing the Bathroom Light

Finally! I installed a light fixture without electrocuting myself! No more zaps, stings, zzzzzttt!

We got this light from Home Depot, two for $15! I wanted something where the glass was textured, but this was ridiculously cheaper, and it had two light bulbs. It really lights the bathroom superbly. With CFLs in there, it's not as bright, but the dimmer switch doesn't work with CFLs. I put two 60 watt bulbs in there for now.

Here's the old light fixture being removed. The wiring was so old that the insulation was cracking off. I wrapped electrical tape around the parts of the wire that were exposed.

Here's how it looks with the light off:

Here's with the light on:
