My house was built in 1971. It has undergone some extensive remodeling from previous owners, as well as work we have done in the last 7 years. There is one thing though, that apparently no one has felt the need to upgrade, since somewhere around 1987: the light fixtures. They are truly hideous. The one in our dining room was a particularly horrid eyesore as you can see.
This is the same light, before and after. A bit hard to believe it was SO ugly!
