Before: Old "Hollywood" Lighting

This 1980s light fixture was making this bathroom look very dated. Replacing it is not hard. Before you start the job, be sure to take these safety precautions: ?Switch off and tape off (or lock out) the breaker to any circuit being worked (turning off the wall switch is not enough as someone could inadvertently switch it back). ?Use a non-contact voltage detector to verify the breaker/power is off. Check all wires as some wiring conventions allow the hot wire color to vary (three way switches and fans); always use insulated tools and wear insulated gloves if possible.
