can I repurpose my old flushmount ceiling lights?

dlr98004March 11, 2010

We replaced 3 flush mount ceiling lights with recessed can lights down our hallway. The 3 flush mount ceiling lights are quite nice (mini chandelier with round glass surround and bronze trim). You can still get them online for about $200 each. If I sell them on ebay or craigslist, I'll be lucky to get $25 each. SO! Can I convert them into pendants? I need 3 pendant lights in our foyer and the size/scale of these flushmount fixtures would work fine. How do I change the "mounting" on the flushmount to have some sort of a pendant with a ring/chain/cap?

Just trying to save a few bucks! Thanks for the suggestions. Sorry - I don't have any pictures - everything is MIA around our house!

Take a good look at this site, if they don't have what you need I don't know who would! I use them quite a bit so let me know if you need any more tips.
