We purchased this chandelier for the nursery and it looks gorgeous! It wasn't that difficult to attach all the crystal pieces although it took some time and patience. Our contractor installed it to the ceiling so I am not sure if it was challenging. It looks beautiful once all put together and installed. It's also very bright and definitely looks more expensive than the price listed. If you are going for the modern chic style, you found just the right piece.
My easy going husband is very handy and has renovated nearly every inch of this house. Installing this beast of a light took him nearly 7 hours! He didn't complain, but I kept asking if something was wrong. Bottom line is that this product is made for new construction and not for replacing a can light. He had to bust out some of the drywall ceiling and it was quite a mess. Not a quick and easy installation, but it is really beautiful! If your handyman is paid by the hour he will love this product! But you will love it anyway.
This light fixture gave off more light than you would expect. We have it in our walk in closet and had to reduce the wattage because it was so bright. It was a little tedious to put together, but so exciting that I didn't mind. My husband and a friend installed it. It looks great, especially considering the great price.
