After reading all the previous reviews I was ready and prepared to work an average of 2 hours on setting this lighting fixture up but no, it took me all of 30 minutes because of all your comments. I knew what to expect. This is one of the most beautiful items I have purchased online! It is hanging in my dining room and it was just hung today. I have had folks drive by my house and knock on my door and ask about it. I really don't want to tell them where I got it because I don't want everyone to have it because it is special :-) It is so beautiful in my room. I wish we can share pictures of all of our room transformations! Thank you O!
