Thus far, I think I had managed to crop it out of every photo, but there it is in all it's cheap and ugly glory!!
I don't really want to take down the track lighting and repair the popcorn ceiling, because it seems like a job that could really spiral into a whole mess of things with cement ceilings, discoloured paint, and obvious popcorn ceiling repair and it the end I would probably just put up different track lighting. I have nothing against track lighting in a condo as it allows for the positioning of light where I need it. So I think I am just going to switch out the lights for something nicer! That is the best part of this kind of lighting...you can just replace the lights.
There are three options I am debating between from Home Depot (which seems to have the best selection):
|Hampton Bay 1 Light|
I like this one because it is simple and cheap at $18 a pop. Cam thinks I should go for 4 lights (2 on each side) and these will fit nicely and not destroy the bank. I am not concerned with going with a metal finish, because the track blends in with the ceiling anyway, and the one metal light I have now looks perfectly fine. All the white coloured options looked really cheap to me too.
|Lithonia Cylinder Light|
This one is more modern and I like the clean white shade. Of course, it is the most expensive at $29 per light!
|Hampton Bay Brushed Metal Shade|
I'm thinking of going with the expensive one (SIGH), as I think it will go best with my space. What do you guys think?
