How to Transform a Recessed Light into a Chandelier

Recessed Light to Chandelier Pin

I had a recessed light that shines over our master bath tub.  The tub deserves more than a single, recessed light.  So I started talking to my (handy man) dad about how to transform the recessed light into a chandelier.

What could have been a very complicated job requiring an electrician was made much easier thanks to a recessed light converter kit.

Before you begin, make sure the power is off.  Then, remove the plastic recessed lighting case and light bulb.

Since we’re not electricians, I’m not going to give a tutorial for electrical work.  However, I will tell you it wasn’t hard, and the kit comes with detailed instructions and diagrams.

The kit really does make converting a recessed light into a light fixture as easy as possible.  Now I have a pretty chandler hanging over my tub…

We are planning to update our bathroom completely next year.  A few months ago, I put together my dream bathroom.  Want to see more?  Click HERE.  This chandler is a little different than than one I originally envisioned, but I found this on on clearance at Lowe’s and couldn’t turn it down!
