- Baltzer replaces the chandelier with two hanging lamps suspended with ottoman legs. She drills out the centers of the legs, glues them together, then sprays them with coffee brown paint and polyurethane. Next, she threads electrical cord through the centers and attaches the chain. The lamps are hard-wired to the existing electrical box (which is covered with a decorative ceiling plate) and suspended over the table with hooks. She also creates a pair of matching table lamps for the buffet, using a ceiling plate as the base for a unified look.
