I went to IKEA and bought an inexpensive fixture, the " Melodi" only $9.99 so that I could use the cord and the ceiling plate. I removed the plastic shade and used my found treasure. We hung it in our entryway where there used to be an ugly ceiling fixture. The only difficult part was how high it was - about 20 feet. I had to rent a giant ladder and my husband kindly installed it for me. Thanks Steve for indulging me again!
