the well lit living room
mike does a little light makeover – replacing an old track light in his living room with 5 regolit pendant lamps.
he says, “we started with 5 of the regolit lamps and build a framework out of mdf to hide a powerbar and all the cords. the mdf panel is mounted to the ceiling through 4 2x4s put together as a frame, offsetting the mdf 3″ from the ceiling.
there are some shims attached to the mdf that helped us align the mdf against the 2x4s. took 3 people to hold up the mdf and screw it into the 2×4 frame.
