The fluorescent conversion is done...
I chose the "warm" color, which looks positively yellow next to daylight. It's nowhere near that dramatic "in person."
Next up: some replacement for the light that's built in to the range hood. The view from down under:
What I think I'll do is get an adhesive strip of LED's and run it underneath the front edge of the hood, and slice wires onto the red and white wires which lead into the incandescent bulb that's there. The stove top doubles as a work surface, and that one little bulb doesn't help much.
These are both examples of projects which I enjoy doing, and which would involve quite a bit in labor costs if I had Merrigan's do it. Win/win.
