My Dad helped me with the electrical part because I am horrible at stripping wire. I always cut through it. We removed the existing light. Then we cut off the plug of the xmas lights. My dad stripped the covering off of the cut end of the xmas lights to expose the wires. There's two connections, and you just twist the ends of the old and the new togther. Then we used those little plastic caps (I don't know what they are called, sorry) to cover the exposed wire or you could use electrical tape. I hope that makes sense.

I love it and I want it. What a remarkable idea! I wish that I had a dining room to put something like that in. I"d totally copy you if I did. Wink

This is SUCH a cool idea. I love christmas lights and use them in my apartment year around too, but mostly just around windows and doorways. I like this so much, I think I might try to make something similar to illuminate my bedroom. Awesome inspiration!!!
