Seeded Glass Mini Pendant Light

Sharing is caring!

Today I’m sharing how to install this beautiful Seeded Glass Mini Pendant Light in a recessed lighting spot. Updating this light has been on my to-do list since I started my kitchen makeover years ago. Our kitchen makeover has been a long work in progress, but it’s almost finally done!

How to Install Recessed Light Converter

The first step is turning off the power! I went to our breaker box and was able to just switch off the power to this area. If you aren’t 100% sure, I recommend turning off all the power to be safe. Next, you want to remove your recessed light cover. I inserted a flat head screwdriver between the cover and the ceiling. This will help to lower/loosen the cover.

Installing a recessed lighting kit

Follow the directions on your kit, but my next step was twisting in the converter plug (just twists into the light bulb spot). Then I installed the bar across that will support the weight of your pendant light. (these are all included in the kit I linked to above) Installing the bar was the hardest part. You need to drill into the metal frame, and with the hands over your head, plus a hard angle, it’s a challenge…. but it’s totally doable!

Now it’s time to connect the wires. Make sure to double-check that you are connecting everything correctly, you don’t want to redo anything.

Add the final decorative cover for that plate is the final step.
