Purchased this for our breakfast nook area. I spray painted the candles "colonial red" to match accents on the curtains and they look great!!! Used clear "candle tip" chandelier light bulbs (three 60W) and gives out plenty light. One of the crystal was slightly cracked and the manufacturer didn't have replacements, but Overstock offered me options and I chose to get an *****. I have another chandelier I purchased from Overstock which I also spray painted the candles off white, and accented the "candle drippings" a light tea color (used light brown acrylic paint which you can purchase at craft stores *** paint mixed with water to dilute the paint to look like tea stain-you need only a drop of the brown paint, dab it with the water to dilute, and dab it on the candle drippings - start lighter, and darken as you wish - the key word is "dab" it will look more natural) ) to give it dimentsion and they looked amazing!!! These original chandelier candles never look great - they look very fake, but if you spray paint them, it changes completely the look and they look even more expensive! I've purchased several items from Overstock and have always been happy with the quality of product, delivery, and excellent customer service!
this mini chandelier makes me happy every time I look at it. Easy to install (by an electrician) and gorgeous fixture ! The wires are exposed though so be prepared but I called the company and as they explained to me, they are hardly noticable once the crystals are hanging. Anyway I love it so much I would like another one!!! great price and well made!
