I was recently asked about design mistakes I’ve made in the past, and I figured I'd write them down so you all don’t have to make them too!
A couple things I've learned...
1. Make sure your backplates match.
When changing out sconces for a Bathroom remodel, I purchased a new sconce whose backplate wasn’t as wide as the old one so we had to patch and re-paint the wall to make the new sconces work. They were fabulous though!
2. Use a hefty Jbox!
When hanging a very heavy, vintage chandelier, I didn’t realize more support and a stronger rated Jbox were needed in the ceiling. Luckily, the ceiling was still open when the chandelier arrived at the Jobsite so we could change it out, but double check the weight limits on your Jboxes before you buy a giant iron fixture! Typically Jboxes can support 50 pounds but always consult with a professional electrician.
