Then as I clicked on pictures in the google images search, I found this blog, showed Ed, discussed and decided that there had to be an easier way, and then we took a trip to Lowe's.
Edward drilled a couple holes, removed the old fixture, adjusted the wire lengths, while I washed the jars.
It was pretty easy, especially for me because I didn't do any of the hard parts. I love it. I love that three of the jars (the big center one, and the two smallest) belonged to my grandma.
$54 for the main fixture
$40 for the two pendants
$8 for the drill bit hole saw thingy
