Need to replace can light with standard light
We have a recessed light fixture in the bathroom that the wife wants me to replace with a small chandilier she purchased. The new light has all the standard h/w to hang it from a standard ceiling light box. Since the existing recessed light and can are in the ceiling, and the hole for it is much larger than the normal ceiling light box, I'm looking for a solution to replacing the light properly. I know I can go Rambo and just open the ceiling enough to rip out the can and put in the correct size ceiling box for the new light size and weight (though it is a small fixture). I am curious if there is some sort of conversion kit to replace the recessed light. I will probable put one of those decorative ceiling medallian's up to cover the larger hole.
