How To Swap In A Vintage Light This Old House

Cut power to the existing fixture at the breaker. Check to see if there is still electricity flowing by using a circuit tester and flipping the wall switch on and off.

Connect the white wire in the ceiling to the white wire on the fixture by twisting the ends and then screwing on a wire nut. Repeat the process with the black wires and with the ground wires if you have them.

Position the new fixture over the screws on the mounting bracket, and secure using the nuts provided.
