Light up my Laundry

I’ve been keeping an eye out for a vanity light for the laundry room for a while.  The other day we were at the Habitat Restore and I came across a cute brushed nickel fixture for nine bucks!  Score!

Here’s what we were living with, an icky shell sconce with brass backplate.  This picture doesn’t portray the ickiness adequately, just use your imagination:


So, with a little help from my handy father, I swapped the old for the new:


I even had to go buy more light yellow paint to repaint the stripes behind the plate!  But, I think it turned out quite nicely, what do you think?
