Postby ian heron » Fri Nov 02, 2007 1:33 pm

I'm trying to fit a new light to an exisiting decorativce plaster ceiling rose. Obvioulsy the plaster will not hold the light up, short of creating a large hole in the plaster rose to get the light nearer the joists are there any other ways of fixing it??
