Some Handy Dandy Lighting Finds

While browsing my Ballard Design catalog yesterday I came across three products being sold in there that I thought were brilliant. All three are lighting innovations made to transform lights you already have in your home into something totally different.

The above picture shows my first discovery. This kit will convert any can light in your home into a pendant style light. Pretty cool! I am going to hunt this kit down and see if they make outdoor versions too. The second is this cork lighting kit. You can pop this into jars or even vases (if the opening size is the same) and convert your jars, jugs, vases and.................the list goes on; into a cool lamp!

Last what an easy peasy way to transform your chandelier into a crystal laden sparkler! These magnetic crystals can attach to anything that is magnetically worthy. Fun! What a quick change you could make with these. Click Ballard Designs to find more information on these fun finds!


  1. I want some of those crystals! What would we do without Ballard Designs?

  2. I'm with Stacey...gotta love Ballard Designs!!! Great ideas...thanks for sharing!!!

    Have a wonderful day!!!

  3. What great ideas. I need to look at Ballards. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Marty

  4. KD,

    I was amazed when I saw these lighting ideas in Ballard. I am not as much of a fan as my husband of recessed lighting and I wanted to buy these pendant things and stick them up in the kitchen before he came home from work!! LOL!!

    I did not see the crystals. I am going to run and get a magnet to see if it will work on my chandelier!!

    Have a great week!


  5. Like minds! I just saw those also and I'm intrigued by the ease of changing a look, seemingly so effortlessly.

  6. The magnetic crystals are amazing... must get some of those!
