A lampshade onto a pendant light kit, so you can hang a lampshade from the ceiling. That's come up a couple of times from people that have made their own lampshades or want to, and they want to know if they can end up installing it as a pendant, and the answer is yes, you can you basically just need a pendant light kit and Standard lampshade and you just assemble the socket and reinstall it with the lampshade on there and it's pretty straightforward. I'm going to show you how to do that today.
The pendant light kit I'm going to use today is just a really basic mini pendant kit from Westinghouse, but you can get these kinds of kits elsewhere at other room web stores like West Elm. They all basically work. The same way as a fitting where it hangs down from the ceiling like this a length of cord which you can cut to size depending on how long you want it and the socket here. The lampshade that I have is actually one.
I made myself using a lampshade kit and you can see that the fitting here is what's called a spider fitting and it's really the most common kind of fitting for lampshades in the US and we're going to end up attaching the spider fitting here to the socket so it hangs down from the ceiling. So basically all we're going to do is take apart this socket so that the lampshade can be threaded on over the cord. So I'm just going to take everything apart like so so once you've disassembled your socket, you just need to thread the cord through your lampshade fitting, like so, and it's ready to hang from the ceiling like this.
