The Scary Elevator!

People’s reactions were funny. Some would say, “I’m not getting in THAT! It’s Scary”

The Elevator just goes up one floor. A great feature that we use surprisingly often. But it didn’t look welcoming. Dark paneling with a single,¬†overhead florescent light that vibrated and hummed as if designed to annoy.

The Fix was simple:

  • Remove the old light fixture and install four small LED spotlights to wash down the walls.
  • A ceiling medallion worked great to cover the holes from the old light.
  • Remove that hideous wall telephone. I don’t have telephone line service anyway.
  • Paint the walls to match the hallway; a pleasant light sandy color.
  • Add some “Artwork”. Makes people forget it’s a small elevator.
It was neat and clean but you felt "Trapped"
When did those Princess Telephones first appear?
