Converting Light Fixtures

I have two beautiful tiffany ceiling lamps. I am moving to a house that does not have any ceiling electrical except for the dining room. Is it possible to convert one or both of these lights into a chandelier type light?

Converting Light Fixtures

If there is a ceiling electrical box, then it is possible to convert it to most any light you would like, including hanging fixtures.

There is one thing to investigate: how secure is the box? Depending on the type and mounting of the box, it may not support enough weight.

Converting Light Fixtures

Very possible I would talk with a lighting supply house (lamp repair shop) or small electrical contractor. We do these type of jobs for our customers quite often.
