Cory and I had an issue with our newly installed light fixtures over spring break and we decided to remedy the situation ourselves (dang 'ol slanted ceilings). Now, I do not encourage you to do this, but to actually do the research that I was too lazy to do on my own.
Problem: Part of fixture needs to secured at the ceiling but the mechanism is about an inch too short.
Soluation: Hot Glue (we had already ruled out super glue).
What it looks like:
And now those metal rings that affix to the ceiling are up there--hopefully for good!
What was most impressive was Cory's willingness to go along with this crazy idea I had instead of drilling the metal piece into the ceiling. I have no idea what we're in for, but we did it!
Ahh... new homeowner-ship. It's the best. :)
Have you ever done anything crazy like this? My piece-of-mind and I would love to hear about it in the comments!
