When I took the light out of the box, one of the metal crossbars that hold it up was broke. Im pretty handy, so I decided I would fix that myself. So far///so good. When we went to install the light, it only gives you one way to install the light. The direction of my table runs north & south My outlet box in the celing runs east & west. This light runs east & west too so be prepared to go to the local hardware store to purchase another gadget to run it the other direction if needed. Additional cost...yes! Pain....yes! I've ordered several items over the years on ovestock and have been really happy but this one by far is the worst. Once installed, the light is beautiful. We're just hoping and praying that the broken crossbar holds up.
