I had my buildings handyman do the electrical and my boyfriend did the rest. After the top part was installed, he took the lower part and sat down to attach the crystals. He made sure they all faced in the same direction. The crystals won't fall out if you go through each strand and gently squeeze any clips that are too open. This will keep them from falling off when you're ready to secure to the top of the fixture which he said was quite easy. Once again he gently squeezed each clip at the top as far as he could to keep it secure. We found it easier placing the bulbs in first before the crystals and we used 60 watts after seeing 40 wasn't bright enough. We also plan on having a dimmer installed. It's not very big. It's best for narrow hallways, or any other small areas. It is gorgeous!!
I received this light and was slightly dreading assembling it. It is not at all difficult. if you start at the bottom, put glass dish crystal in between the parts of the small post, then attach the bottom crystal. Attach the small metal, bottom ring in the proper location with the longer post. Now just attach the crystals to the small bottom ring, being careful that the correct side is facing outward. When you screw the pole into the mounted top piece you simply bring the crystals, one at a time and mount them in the top holes. If you are considering buying this DO! I just redid my bathroom with travertine and this light was the crowning jewel.
was hard for me to put the hanging glass pieces on as i'm 65 an my fingers don't always work , . but finally 3 hrs later got it together .NOW as forinstall ,the ceiling box was too small ,an our maint. man had to do some alteraterations on getting it up that took over an hr an a half
bought several and am going to buy more for every bathroom and closet in the house......they are adorable and very well made and look even better than the picture....great price and dresses up any small space.......they are not large so for a bigger room or bedroom might be too small but wherever you put them they are absolutely adorable! they look expensive too!!
This light is a bit of a challenge to put up. I wore gloves and didn't have any trouble assembling it, but mounting it was difficult. I suggest leaving some of the rows of crystal unattached at the top to allow room for your hands to work. it would be best if you leave three undone by the holes you have to mount the light with. When you are finished you will be so pleased with glow from this light.
