How to Convert a Swag Chandelier
Candlesticks intended to be connected directly to the ceiling are not an option for renters or do not want to mess with the wiring. But you can still buy a lamp of attractive spider and turn it into lamp loot. Swag chandelier use a common household outlet and a cable and no special wiring considerations or to cut holes in its roof. You also do not have to be an electrician to turn your chandelier. Swag kits are available in stores for home improvements include everything needed for this simple, do it yourself project.
Strip 1 inch wire coating each of the two wires extending from the swag chandelier. Be sure to look for any marks or lines on the cables and the marks are still visible after peeling. These marks will tell which wire to connect the cable. Place the cable cover on exposed wires, making sure that no wire is visible. Thread the wire through the chain or coverage that comes with the kit. Put a hook in a plate on the roof, where you want to hang your swag chandelier. I connect a second hook in the ceiling near the lamp output will connect to.
