New hallway lighting

Here's a project I completed between the Fall Cure and this one: new lighting in my hallway. My apartment has a long hallway and it used to have one ugly ceiling light fixture at one end of the hall. The hall was so dark and shadowy that I could hardly see what I was doing.

I replaced the light with some simple track lighting. I wanted something compatible with compact fluorescent bulbs that would disperse light throughout the length of the hall. This is what I found. They are not the most attractive light fixtures, but they are subtle. The hallway is much improved with the new lighting.

Wow, I bet that's an improvement. And kudos to you for choosing cfl's. I'm constantly changing the halogens in my small dark hallway and it's wearing me down!

Now that I see how bright it is now, it is even more obvious how gloomy it used to be. What a difference!
