Lamps Plus just launched a brand new product that makes it easy to make your own lighting - a lamp shade adapter! A DIY chandelier project is now not only possible, but simple too. It's easy to create your own swag light by pairing our hanging swag adaptor with a stylish lampshade that suits your decor. The lampshade must have a spider fitter, and an 11" opening on top.
To get started, pick up a brushed steel shade swag adaptor or an antique brass shade swag adaptor (pictured above), along with a lampshade of your choice. The plug-in shade swag adaptor kit unscrews, and the spider fitting of the lampshade fits into the openings on the adaptor. Tighten the adaptor, and voila! It's simple to use these lamp shade adapters to make your own lighting.
