Now I want a new bathroom, and I'm hungry

Don't you love it when you discover a fun decorating product? I caught part of a lighting special on HGTV the other day, which illustrated how the right lighting can transform a room.

Then they showed the product I love the idea of: a pendant light that screws into a recessed light instead of a light bulb. In the photo above, the homeowner had a few recessed lights over the tub and the designer replaced them with pendant lights. No electrician. No waiting weeks to get an electrician to come to the house. No expense of an electrician.

HGTV lists the source as A Well Hung Light (I dunno...maybe the owner was a writer for Benny Hill in a previous life...).

Looked quick and easy and, next to Lindt Lindor Truffles, in dark chocolate, there's nothing better than that.

Hi,
Thanks for posting this! I may have to order this product for my bath.

It is very innovative...wish I had thought of it!

You are just full of useful information. I had a friend as me two days ago if I knew if a can light could be converted to a regular fixture.

Thanks for that link! I have never heard of such a thing!

Hi Mary...Thanks for stopping by. I am so new to all this decorating. Just finished building a house and I am so eager to learn a lot of tips on how to start. Again thanks for the stop and hope to get to know you better. :) Beth

What a perfect idea! I just ran to my bathroom and there is a recessed light above the tub that is BEGGING for a new light - yay!

Such a neat product. I first heard of it awhile back, but we don't have a good spot for doing that. I do need to update my recessed lights though--they're getting all yellowed.

That's a great idea, I will have to remember that if we run into recessed lighting at our next house...whenever that may be!

I saw these lights in a catalog a couple months ago and... light bulb moment, "why didn't I think of that" what a great way to add a little style to a room. I hope they add some more styles soon. MB

When we moved into our new house we need to fix an existing kitchen cabinet. These guys had an exact match! Amazing. . .
