The fluorescent lighting had not been properly built, by having the framing a little too small, the tubes had to be installed on a diagonal. I hated it! My husband removed the fluorescent tubing, the wood trim around the outside, and finished the inside of the "soffit' with a bit of drywall, installed the can lights, and painted the entire space. The wallpaper was there previously, which we liked, so we left it. I love the difference!
