We purchased our brass filled house about five years ago.
Before moving in, we changed out the brass door hinges and door knobs to oil rubbed bronze.
We changed out a few of the brass ceiling fixtures in the first year of home ownership. Then just "lived" with the rest for far too long.
This little brass octagonal beauty has been a thorn in my side!
It is located in a small, dark hallway. I didn't want to replace this with anything that resembled a "boob" fixture...you know the ones! Another requirement was white opaque glass, not the yellow/parchment colored glass that so many fixtures have. An old-fashioned schoolhouse looking fixture was what I had in mind. I was pleasantly surprised to find this Hampton Bay Esdale fixture at our local Home Depot for less than $30.
