Our living has no light source, save a few windows. For some reason, over the last 70 years, previous owners never felt the need for installing a lighting fixture.

The ceiling and walls are plaster. I'm assuming that I would have to find a stud in the ceiling to mount it to and then knock holes out all along the ceiling and down the closest wall to an outlet.

Please tell me there's an easier method than this. Besides the lamps we've got plugged in around the room.
