Charlie and I finally got down to hanging the master bathroom lighting fixtures.
We turned off the breaker to the bathroom lights.
A hanging plate came with the fixture but we had to put the screws in from the other side so the green ground screwhead is facing down.
We used the arced slots so we could position the escutcheon screws on two fixtures in the same configuration.
We snipped the wires so the bottom of the fixtures would hang approximately 36 inches above the counter then I threaded the escutcheon onto the wires.
Charlie stripped 1 inch of casing from each of the colored wires inside the thicker black covering. We worked together to twist the wires into wire nuts: black to black, white to white, and copper to green around the ground screw.
We tightened the escutcheon to the ceiling plate with the small silver balls allocated. The bottom of the globe actually ended up 38 inches from the top of the counter which seems to be a very good height in the respect that it hangs above our heads and we can’t see the bulb in the fixture.
When we turned the breaker on and flipped the switch it worked.
This is the first time I’ve had light over my bathroom mirror.
Do you tamper with electricity?
