    Lighting




    Most people start shaking in their boots when it comes to working with anything that requires some sort of electrical wiring, but I'm here to turn those shivers into confidence by showing how easy it can be to rewire old lighting that gives your house a distinguished look. SEE THE LIGHT....by rewiring the old to make it new and usuable again. Antique and salvaged lights have one of a kind looks and can be incorporated into any room re-do you are doing. Search flea markets, architectural salvage stores, thrift stores, garage sales, e-bay and REstores for great buys and unique styles. It's always a good idea to get rid of the old wiring and sockets, and install new. It's a simple process and anyone can do it.

    Supplies:

  • Old light fixture
  • Lamp cord
  • New sockets
  • Screwdriver
  • Electrical pliers
  • Wire nuts
