When we moved into our home over five years ago, we found that we could barely see in our master bedroom closet. The light was so dim that I had to bring garments out of the closet to tell if they were navy or black. One day, I may have even put on two different shoes. And don’t even get me started on how it effected my color blind husband.
The first thing that would pop into most people’s heads would be to replace the light fixtures so that we could use a higher wattage of bulbs, right? Yeah, we thought that too. We even bought several can lights that Tom was going to install, but it never happened. Ahem. ::sideways glance at Tom::
Well, one of the bulbs in those old fixtures finally burned out a few weeks ago. When I opened the fixture to remove the bulb that had burned out, I found that it looked like this:
What in the world? This was originally a soft white bulb, but now it looks marbled.
Do any of you know what causes a marbled light bulb? I’ve googled every which way I can think of, but I’ve come up with nothing. Do you think there’s something wrong with my light fixture or was this maybe a defective bulb (that lasted over 5 years)? Or something else scary? Or just something cool?
What say you, my friends? This Nancy Drew wants to know.
