I'm pretty sure we mentioned what a score this pendant light was HERE! After we got home from the warehouse sale and googled the company, I about dropped dead on the floor in surprise. A stunning and statement making piece and quite the find...our BTC Pendant!
CC Hubby got right to work and decided to go ahead and remove the previous owners leftover pendant. I have one thing to say to this obnoxious pendant, "See you later!" It busted open hub's forehead the first weekend and I've knocked my noggin on it a time for two, too!
Cutting off the cording to expose the wiring...before this step MAKE SURE you turn the switch to off. Even though the breaker is switched, you can still get shocked from the ground wire if the switch is on! It happened to hubby...and he said a bad word, ha!
So this is where hubby's expertise comes into play. I have no idea what wires go with which pendant wire, etc. He told me, "Ground...green" and so on and so forth. I still have no idea what he was saying so...I just looked up some stuff via google (like THIS) so that I'd better understand and help if the going got tough. But, of course, it didn't (that always happens when you're prepared, right?)
Almost there! This pendant comes with a great mini-conical shaped cover plate that had a tightener that allowed the piece to scoot up and down the cording. CC Hubby got it right up against the ceiling and tightened it in for good!
A very industrial piece, our BTC Pendant is exactly what we were craving and searching for!
