no fixture in dining room


My small house has an addition that I believe was intended as a "sunroom." The roof is flat and, when punching a hole into the drywall ceiling, it's just a small space between celing and roof. There is no wiring in the ceiling. We now use this space as a dining room and currently have a swag lamp over the table, but I'm not particularly fond of the look. Short of tearing down the ceiling, is there any economical way to run wiring to that room? At the very least, I'd like to try to "thread" the pendant swag wiring through the ceiling to the nearest outlet - is this a possibility? I'm very frustrated with this problem.

You can't run that fixtures wire through the wall and ceiling. You will have to fish the wire through the wall and ceiling and use proper size boxes and wire for what you want to do. You can look on youtube for some video's showing how this is done.

Anything can be done if you have enough money.
It may be best to get an electrition to do it because there more likly to have the needed tools to do the job, and know how to safey do it.

Use wiremold. Run it in corners as far as you can. Paint it the same colour as the wall/ceiling.
