Hard-wiring a pendant lamp...

When I purchased the Eden Pendant Lamp from CB2 I already knew that it was going to take some adjusting to make it work in our space. The Eden lamp is actually a plug-in lamp and we needed to hard-wire it as a permanent fixture. After reading a few tutorials hubby and I decided we would hard-wire the lamp ourselves, so on Saturday we crossed our fingers and got to work!
Our ceiling outlet box was already installed when we bought the house, which made this process super easy!
I cut the lamp cord leaving more than enough to practice (then we trimmed it to size)!
I stripped the coating off the cord to expose the wires
at this point we cut all power to the dining area.
Hubby installed the canopy mount.
Before installing the canopy plate and fixture we checked to make sure the fixture worked!
Hubby installed the canopy and fixture.
I installed the drum shade
and in less than an hour we hard-wired a pendant lamp.
