My daughter has been complaining that the kitchen table light is too bright and please could I put a dimmer on it so she doesn't get a headache from the bright lights? Why yes, dear daughter, I can get a dimmer switch and install it for you. And I get to play with electric. Sounds like fun to me.
Here's a handy tip for you. Don't try to do this at night. Since you must turn off the power at the circuit breaker box, you would be left trying to work in the dark. And no, I wouldn't know about that from personal experience. Really. *Whistles innocently*
Here is the light that will be getting the dimmer switch. Oh, and I also had installed this light fixture a few years ago. You see, I really am Electric Woman.
And here is the light switch I will be installing.
Oh yes, I'm good.
