We are selling our house and needed to replace the old bathroom light fixture. For that purpose (i.e., looks acceptable to us but we won't have to live with it) this fixture was fine. I wasn't impressed with the details and quality, but the styling is really not bad -- clean and simple. We put 100 watt bulbs in it and it SO bright -- need to replace with a more moderate wattage. Installed in the up-light position, it's not ideal for applying makeup but provides good ambient light. In our case, we couldn't turn it to down-light because of where the hole in the wall already was - it hung too far over the top of the mirror.
