Let there be light!

New pendant light is hung in Savannah's big girl room and check it out, I loves it!  It has great simplicity but just enough wow and a glass orb sorta way.  

 When I purchased the {pendant light} I had actually intended on buying the style that you just screw into your light bulb and instantly converts your recessed light to a pendant. Genius requires no wiring and no tools necessary.  But in true absentminded form I ordered the hardwired version - not the easy converter...aww shucks!  
But I found {this} amazeballs convert your recessed can to a pendant light product at Home Depot.  It has a some wiring required but it is very easy to install so I didn't have to do any excessive wiring, patching of drywall..etc.  If/when I do have a major home reno and hire an electrician out for major projects, I might permanently convert some recessed cans to pendants but for now, this is a down and dirty trick!

The Glass Orb Pendant was form Home Decorators - $45 (I had a $10 off coupon)
The Converter Kit was from Home Depot - about $13

What a quick, easy an inexpensive transformation!

The room has so much more light...I love it!!!  I'm thinking about getting more of these converters for my hallways, laundry room and kitchen!!!  Hope you enjoy Savannah's big girl room, I'll add her room to the {House Tour} page soon! Hope you all have a wonderful week and thank for reading!

  1. I love the gray..what color did you use. I have been struggling to find a good one. The changes from PNW gloomy to PNW sunny really make a huge difference on how it looks on the wall...

    1. Hi Jess...The room color is Stonington Grey from Benjamin Moore! I have a ton of grey in my house and they really do change with the season! But the stonington and Thunder Grey are my two favorite Benjamin Moore ones!
      Thanks for reading!
