Dear Tess, Looks good. However, I'd consider putting a lightshade over to, so that it can only really shine _down_ over the door, not _out_ towards the viewers. A prototype door light exists to light the stoop and the step just outside the doorway, allowing someone waiting at the door to be identifi...
