We recently replaced the living room light fixture. But that doesn't mean that it wasn't a perfectly fine light fixture. It just had gold accents, which didn't go so well with our dark wood furniture with silver pulls. Plus, we were looking for something a little more modern to fit with the look of the house. (And it doesn't hurt to add a fan to any Austin living room.)
So I moved the old light fixture out to the garage, which was lacking in the light cover area.
