I was SO happy when my husband put up this chandelier for me.. but it's above my makeup vanity and I started to feel pretty warm in a short period of time. Not what I was hoping for.. I need to look into different light bulbs.. hopefully that will help
You have to assemble every strand but there are simple directions and once you catch on it's pretty easy. I took the advice of past reviewers and bought locking earring hooks at the craft store and used those on both ends of each strand. You can't see them and it makes assembly much quicker and easier. It's just time consuming but worth it for the price. We have 3 of these in different lengths.
Wanted to place this light in our kitchen nook which has low ceilings so the cheapness of the light was really visible. Plus, the item didn't come with the correct crossbar to mount so I returned the item. I think the concept is great and it would probably work in a room that had higher ceilings.
