ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Classifieds -

Rather than hire an elec­tri­cian, my boyfriend and I de­cided to wire in our new ‘Elias Retro’ light from John Lewis our­selves. Here’s what I learnt. Pho­to­graph the ex­ist­ing wiring Once you’ve re­moved the orig­i­nal ceil­ing light, you’ll be able to see how it was wired in. Take a pic­ture so you have a valu­able ref­er­ence.

Test the light be­fore fi­nal fix­ing

Putting the left­over flex into the rose and screw­ing the fit­ting into po­si­tion is a fid­dly job that you won’t want to re­peat. Stay strong This job re­quires you to spend a while with your arms above your head!
