Thank you Jack! All done and it looks wonderful! I did it as soon as I read your reply. I logged on to thank you then read the other post. It is about 5 years old. Bought it from Lowes, it was a floor model, hanging tiffany. The wires are brown, the kind you have to split. I am so proud of myself! Not a big deal for you gentlemen but it was for me. Thank you again.
