In an effort to conserve energy we are slowly changing all of the bulbs in the house to Energy Star CFL and LED. Most are the spiral ones but I refused to put those on our chandeliers and lights where they could be seen. Thankfully, they are now carrying decorative CFL/LEDs. Music to my ears. The lights we had prior to these would make the room crazy hot.
Although these lights take a while to “warm up” and brighten they don’t get hot and the room stays much cooler aka no energy lost as heat.
The only bad thing about our new energy efficient bulbs….the teal writing on the sides (note: The teal is almost the same as the wall color).
Bowl of Bulbs and a little washy tape to the rescue. I was careful not to touch the metal base.
It looks so much better and this was a super easy project. Happy Friday and have a good weekend. I’ll be so glad to find time to put up the curtains in the dining room.
