What kind of fixture can I add a plug or swag to?


I need to add some overhead lights to my kids' rooms. Eventually I'll get up in the attic and pull wiring for an overhead, but have a couple of other projects going on right now, and am not looking forward to getting up there. I'm looking for something that I can plug into the switched outlets in each room until I'm able to get up there.

I've seen swag kits at the box stores, but wasn't sure what sort of fixtures those are appropriate for.

The rooms are both around 9x12, and I'm looking for something that'll probably take around a 75 watt bulb.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

They've got lamps in there now, but they don't seem to get the rooms bright enough. I was thinking that an overhead light would give them some more light.
