I wanted a wall mounted light for my bedroom that would plug with a normal 3 pin plug into a socket I have spare. I didn't want anything fancy, I'm not bothered about digging the wires into the wall (as it happens the wires will pass behind a mirror and chest of drawers to the socket). I couldn't find a plug in light i liked so I just bought a wall light fixture that ought to be wired in thinking I could wire a plug onto the end.
Am I safe to do this? What kind of fuse should I use?
