In this video, I show you how to convert a single light fixture or ceiling fan in a room to recessed lighting.
Please respect, not fear electricity. If you are not familiar or comfortable working with electric or have any hesitation, hire an electrician! Doing this type of work is at your own risk. My video’s are for entertainment purposes only. They are not meant to be “how to” videos if you are unfamiliar with the topic.
