The Row House

Our version of a disco ball

Blog readers who’ve been with us for awhile know that we picked up an old elevator door from a saw mill that used to be on 60th Street in Lawrenceville.


We got it from a local artist who was selling it on Craigslist for $25.

Mark brought it home…I said “What the hell is that?!”…and Mark proudly informed me that we were hanging it from our ceiling.

It was an unfinished project for many months. Then, we bit the bullet and made it into the light fixture Mark had envisioned.


We bought LED light tape to put around the edges.


A connector was important since the one 12 foot spool didn’t go all the way around.

Also important…a dimmer.


We’re going for a sexy, halo glow in our living room…we don’t want it to look like a doctor’s office.

It took several tries before we properly patched the first string of light tape and the connector.


Then came the hard part. I had to hold up three sides of the (VERY HEAVY) door while Mark screwed it back onto the brackets.


This lasted about 20 minutes…Mark would yell speak to me and I would yell tell him that I was TRYING MY BEST!

We finally got it up. Pretty spectacular, huh?! 🙂
