How to disguise cord & chain that extend to 1980’ style swag lights on both sides of bathroom mirror. Chain gathers dust & is such a pain to dust but do not want to replace fixture. Also do not want to use gathered cloth extension cord cover.

      Will try to send pic but not too proficient with iPhone/technology. Husband does not want to replace with single light fixture so I am trying to come up with a compromise.

    They make channeled conduit that can be place over your wiring.

    Home Depot carries plastic channel that can conceal the cord and is paintable. It is self adhesive so easy to install.


    I used this type of product on pendant lights at the sides of my bed and it looks really good.

      Will check out Home Depot today. As I get closer to my 80’s, I am much less inclined to get ladder out & climb up to dust that old chain. Thanks for the suggestion!
