|I braved the scary, cobwebby crawlspace behind the wall. That's how dedicated I am to not having to leave my bed when it is time to turn the light out at night!|
So I had to add some wood in order to have something for my lamp to hang from. I measured the space, it was just over 29" between the two semi-studs. I cut a 2X4 to length and used my kreg jig to attach some screws to it. I knew that in this tight space I would have a hard time trying to hold screws, wood and driver at the same time. Then I screwed it in and skedaddled out of there!
I knew where to add the board because I had drilled a small hole in the wall where I wanted my screw to be and could see the light shining through the hole. So back on the outside of the wall I just put the screw in that same hole and I was done!
I'm sure most people would have cleaned up their room before taking any pictures, but I'm just that lazy! I got the lamp at Target at least half a year ago, so if you like it, too bad; it's probably no longer sold there! I have plans to pretty up the cord and when that's done I will clean the room up so you can see how nice it all looks!
