My husband and I struggled to hang this light for two days. It comes completely apart and you need to build all the arms, etc. He got it put together well enough the first night (the arms for each light are not tight when installed, they are easily moved, just FYI) but couldn't hang it on his own. I tried to help him the second night and it did NOT go well at all. We ended up having to hire an electrician which was a bummer, we are both very handy people. Regardless of the drama, I LOVE it installed and love looking at it every day. It's in our bedroom in the tray ceiling and I think it's fantastic. Hubby would rate it 3 stars, I wrote the review, hence the 4. Save yourself the trouble, hire the professional first.
