    I want to change mine soon, also, or take it down and paint it at least, I like this article from Lowe's that walks you through how to change out a dining room light fixture:

    It is not a hard thing to do, but it is an awkward task because you are on a ladder working over your head. It is better with 2 people so the one off the ladder can hold the fixture while the one on the ladder removes the old connection or makes the new connection. You may have a problem isolating the circuit if your fixture doesn't have a working bulb and you must isolate the circuit before you do anything. If you are a gal doing this on your own this would be the time to ask for help. There are devices that can help you determine if your fixture is hot, but without actually seeing what you have I cannot advise on that.

    Depends on ceiling height / and size and type of fixture. Two people recommended. All new lamps should come with instructions. The electrics are simple, just make sure to turn off main for that room. You can always consult someone at Lowe's or Home Depot to clear up any questions.

    Do call in an Electrician as this could be dangerous for you to do.
