I was totally disappointed when I opened the package and saw the fixture. According to the picture on 'O', the shade it looks tan-ish with waves of gray/silver. Wrong!!!! The shade is completely one color of off-white. It's supposedly porcelain, with a matt (dull) finish, which is OK. Time is of the essence for me, so I am going to make it work. Though if I knew it was white, I would have never purchase it. 'O' needs to post a different picture.
