    Is it really possible? My fixture is like a pot light and it is really pretty. Is it possible to take an old extension cord with 2 wires and make it a swag lamp?

    All replies would be highly appreciated.

    If the fixture was designed to be permanently mounted then it is not safe to do what you ask.

    How can the danger be lessened?
