This chandelier is exactly what I was looking for and I would buy it again. That being said, assembly was very interesting. Good thing that we are handy and were able to figure things out from the internet picture alone, because the assembly instructions were useless. The metal mesh drum shade is very striking!!! Looks great in my Master Bathroom. Crystals are real cut glass and add lots of sparkle from the light given from the 5 bulbs. Looks much more expensive than what it cost.
