Spray Painting and Moving a Light Fixture

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

The light in my kitchen dining area was right in the middle of the ceiling, but I like my table offset so that I can have a walkway to the family room area. The light fixture was also a gold tone that I didn't care for. The previous owners had left a bunch of different paint in our basement and I found a great metallic dark brown that was perfect. My wonderful husband took the light fixture down, painted it and put it back up using a swag kit that we bought at Lowes for $12. I wasn't even home when my husband painted it so my 5 year old took pictures for me.

I bought this swag kit at Lowes in the lighting department for $12. It came with a 12 ft. chain, wire, and hooks. This whole project cost only $12 and now I have the light fixture where I want it.


  1. How did he wire it? What did he do with ground? Have you had any issues? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
