Can Light Adapter - Drum Shade Pendant is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 100.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light! LOVE! Received my lights in 2 days! Was so excited. My husband who is a handy guy put them up easily within an hour from start to finish. The only complaint and its a very small one. Is that I didn't realize the cord was bendable not stiff. So its taking a while to get the kinks out. But they look great over my island. Got the docmument shades which are so cute. The seam on those is visible when lit, but no big deal. And I would recommend the acrylic light defuser as the light is kind of bright and right in your face depending on the height you hang them at. Overall a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! I ordered these because we broke 1 of a 3 set pendant glass lights in our kitchen. Of course we couldn't find an exact glass match and quite honestly they were dated anyway, so I stumbled across these shades and took a chance. I wasn't sure if they would fit our existing pendant fixtures or how they would look...and they are PERFECT!!! The shade fit perfectly on the existing fixture and they look pretty neat. I did get the natural color and agree that they look darker (in a good way) when the lights are off. I think any darker color would be too dark for a kitchen. My only negative comment is regarding the packing they were shipped in. Less than ideal is an understatement. They were hardly surrounded by anything so 1 of the 3 we got was dented. That said it turned out I wanted a smaller size anyway, so I returned all 3 and exchanged them for the smaller size just by using the packing receipt. And the new ones came fairly fast (better packaged) without any hassle. I would absolutely recommend these to anyone looking to update their old pendant lights without getting an entire new light fixture and electrician!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the shades! Had a pair of standard glass pendants over the kitchen counter and bought the green shades to replace the glass pendant. The look awesome!! They shades didn't fit "as is" I needed to do some clever adjusting - but it worked out fine. Basically I used picture hanging wire and tied the shade frame spokes to the screws that held the previous pendants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is the perfect fixture over out dining room table. The size and natural look are perfect for our room. There is just the right amount of downward light using a halogen bulb with a dimmer. Perfect ambiance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great! Light was just expected. I changed my mind and exchanged the shade which was very easy. But the second shade arrived in a broken box with no packing and the shade was bent. We were able to straighten out the shade and it seems fine. It was easy to install and the cord does straighten out with the weight of the light. It's a great looking light , we are very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made my room look sophiscated I put this pendant shade in my kitchen, and what a difference it made. My kitchen went from okay to really sophiscated but not too fancy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was jusy what I was looking for! I'd looked everywhere locally for this exact shade, to no avail. This light is perfect in my lounge; so much so that I think my next purchase will be the burlap drapes that coordinate...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from these fit your standard pendant fixtures these shades are perfect!!!... i called and talked to someone-i was concerned that they would only fit ballard design hardware---and, they told me that is correct. I didnt' believe them---thank god i didn't cuz they fit perfect...just like any other standard pendant shade you buy anywhere else! they are beautiful and fit perfect! i highly recommend them!!....i will say, i got the natural ones...when you actually turn the light on, they look more like the burlap ones rather than natural.... but that's fine by me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smashing! Changed the entire look of the room We ordered the pendants with the cork shades which glow a beautiful amber/orange when lights are turned on. We also attached the diffusers, which cuts down a little on the task lighting, but worth doing since they soften the light and cover the bulb. These lights were easy to install (a little difficult to get exactly even in height, but with some patience they are now perfect). We placed ours over a kitchen island...we only had room for two pendants, so wanted the large 14" size. We also ordered two extra shades for when the two original ones get grungy and can no longer be cleaned up. Our house has an "open" floor plan (kitchen can be seen from living and dining room) and these pendants pull all the decor together. Actually it was our interior designer who recommended them and the effect is just stunning! Thank you Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light, on the fence about the diffuser We ordered the cork drum light and could not be happier. It is a good size and beautiful when lit. We also ordered the diffuser as the light is over or dining table. Despite much massaging, I can not get it to sit flat in the light so subsequently when it is on, there is an angled shadow in the light which I don't like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish pendant light I bought this as a gift for my kids. It was so easy, it just screwed in the existing fixture like a light bulb. It looks great in their wet bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light for the price My husband and I were looking everywhere for a light like this. We saw many different versions - most were much more expensive. We decided to give this one a try because the price was so good. We are very pleased with the light and it looks just as good as the more expensive versions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Difficult to get even The look of the natural shade is great and it is very sophisticated. But as far as the ease.... get your ladder and plan to spend some time. Have matching light bulbs because you will have a different color shade if they don't match. Then getting the ceiling plate flush with the ceiling is very difficult and I notice the gaps. Anyone have any suggestions? I put double stick tape and it still isn't right. Getting all three shades to line up is also not easy.. plan to go up and down the ladder many times.. I saw the reviews about a 5 minute job and thought no problem. Finally I walked away and vowed to come back with the ladder another day. Some better instructions would help. Any suggestions to the above problems Ballard?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the lamp but.... I like the lamp-it works well in the spot I purchased it for, but I was sent the wrong color lamp shade, with no explanation for the substitution. I kept it because the color is neutral, but it isn't what I ordered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dramatic Difference I read all the reviews and finally bought these for my kitchen. They make a dramatic difference in the room. It's amazing how quickly I was able to update the kitchen with this small change. The biggest "challenge" was getting them even and flush against the ceiling, but the whole process took me about 45 minutes, start to finish. That included unpacking and getting the ladder as well as the clean up! YAY!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality product The drum light was a good quality product. I love it! The only feature that I wish it had was an off/on switch along the cord or at the drum so you wouldn't have to plug/ unplug for use.
Date published: 2012-07-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great look and value This is a great product and perfect for my location. Only disappointment is the look of the diffuser which is larger than the drum. I pictured it being inside the base of the drum rather than outside the lower edges.
Date published: 2013-01-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute fixture I have three of the pendants hanging in a row from my dressing rm.ceiling and they look great. Unfortunatly they don't throw much light (60 watt only) so this was not the perfect application. Better over a table.
Date published: 2011-11-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price for light I searched all over the internet for a good price on this type of light. Ballard had it and the item came as described. It was easy to install and looks great in our kitchen over the table.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from changing out the shade is great for decor options I bought 3 as pendant lighting over kitchen island, intent is to change out shades seasonally ( and when they get grimy given the location) - which is done easily. I will remove bulb, remove old shade, then slip on new shade. Have yet to install but pleased with the material (for the cheap price). I didn't buy diffuser yet (thought it would act as a bug catcher). Cord is fabric coated so a bit "kinky", so installing all 3 at same height may be tricky. Shipped fine.
Date published: 2011-10-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfection with ease Not being so handy hardwiring new lights was not an option these were perfect! They look great. The only thing I wish I knew prior is though the base sits flush with the ceiling it is not anchored to it and floats. Sometimes this results in a piece of trim from the can light showing. However, other than that, they look great and I love them!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product This is a great product that I couldn't find anywhere else. It looks good - especially with the diffuser. The only downside is that I wish it used a brighter bulb than 60 watts.
Date published: 2013-11-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting material choices and sizes Replacement for a shade that got banged up during a house move. Convenient that we were able to go for one (or two) size bigger and for a range of material choices. My wife really likes the cork material both in daylight, and at night-time when the back lighting reveals even more character. The only, slight and not unexpected, negative is that overlap band is also revealed. The lamp fitting was exactly what we needed and the shade arrived quickly and undamaged. Would definitely consider buying another replacement shade from Ballard Designs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish the shades did not have seams I ordered three of these pendant adapters & drum shades for my kitchen. . they really are nice looking--and it is a fine temporary fix. I ordered the diffuser plate for the bottom, but returned because (as many of the reviewers noted) it did not even come close to fitting on the shade. With multiple reviews pointing out this flaw, I assumed that this mismatch would have been corrected by now~ My only other complaints are that the threads on the part that tighten It up to the ceiling seem to strip out easily, and I am unable to get the adapter snug to the ceiling, and I would prefer that the shades were seamless! All in all, though, it is a cheap alternative to hiring an electrician !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would be great had it been what I ordered. The item dimensions were misquoted in the catalog.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea - good look I had been thinking about getting the pendant light adaptor for a while (about a year) and finally ordered it. The price is great, good value, and a really nice look and product execution. However .... Not as easily installed as I would have wanted. The unit screws into an existing can light in place of the bulb, shade attaches and you're done - that is if you're willing to accept good enough. The design of the hook and cord attachmemt leaves the cord off center and it took an hour of manipulating to get the bulb/shade/diffuser to hang straight. It looks great - but a lot of effort was pit into balancing and straightening.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the price - saved the expense of an electrician I am Pretty happy with the two drum pendants I installed over my kitchen island. I wanted fabric shades and could not find them anywhere else. It takes a bit to get them hanging at an equal height if your installing two like I did. Otherwise they look nice for the price and I don't think anyone would believe I installed these myself by screwing them into the existing can lights!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from standard lamp shade I would like to see a natural color liner on the burlap shade. The white contrast is very stark for a hanging fixture
