Quick Fix - Dining Room Lighting

Let me introduce you to my dining room.  

Ok, ok, so it is really the size of a "breakfast nook", but it is our only dining space.  As much as I love the size of most of the rooms in our home, this one is a little on the skimpy side.  Not to mention it has a recessed can light for over the table.

I knew anything would be an improvement over this light fixture:

I've had my eye on the recessed can light conversion pendants for awhile.  I've been waiting for more options to be available.  Then I found this at Home Decorators online.



First take the flange for the recessed light off (remove the springs) and remove light bulb.


After adjusting the length of the cord, screw in light fixture as if you were simply replacing a light bulb.


The canopy is held in place with the tightening of a nut. 

Once the weight of the "wire basket"shade is in place the cord will straighten out. 




Installation was just about as easy as changing a light bulb.  

Speaking of light bulbs, the antique Edison bulb really makes a statement. 




It was a quick fix and a huge improvement!
