Today I’m sharing how to convert recessed lighting into a pendant or chandelier, and you won’t have to hire an electrian!
I had a recessed light that shines over our master bathtub. The tub deserves more than a single, recessed light. So I started talking to my (handyman) dad about how to transform the recessed light into a chandelier.
What could have been a very complicated job requiring an electrician was made much easier thanks to a recessed light converter kit.
This kit can be found on Amazon:
Before you begin, make sure the power is off. Then, remove the plastic recessed lighting case and light bulb.
Since we’re not electricians, I’m not going to give a tutorial for electrical work. However, I will tell you it wasn’t hard, and the kit comes with detailed instructions and diagrams.
And it helps if you have a handyman for a dad and an assistant dressed like Anna from Frozen…
The kit really does make converting recessed light into a light fixture as easy as possible. Now I have a pretty chandler hanging over my tub…
Are there any rooms in your home you’d like to convert recessed lighting?
We are planning to update our bathroom completely next year. A few months ago, I put together my dream bathroom.

This chandler is a little different than one I originally envisioned, but I found this on clearance at Lowe’s and couldn’t turn it down!
Go create something!

This is great, but where did he attach the green grounding wire to the side of the can light?
