Recessed Light Kit

June 19, 2015

I took my kitchen from drab to fab in just a few simple steps. 

It all started with this conversion pendant fitter kit, I picked up at Lowe's. 

The nice man at Lowe's walked me thru how the kit works and it seemed easy enough.

These kits are great if you live in an apartment or rent,

 and really can't change the lighting completely.

This kit takes recessed lights and turns them into pendant lights.

In my excitement to update the old lighting, I forgot to snap a before pic.

But really if you have seen one ugly recessed light, you have seen enough! 

You can chose different finishes to match your style. I went with the brushed nickel.

So, you chose a style of finish and then you pick a globe to match your homes decor.

It was an easy installation and the kit gives you plenty of wire to adjust the length.

 Easy as that, I swear!

Lowe's stocks lots of globes to choose from but, this blue cracked glass one worked for me. 

I think it would be cool to change the globe with the seasons or if you just want something different.

Updating this light over my sink didn't stop here, I updated the light over the table and island also.  

Come back next time to see that progress.
