I purchased this light for my soon-to-be-born baby girl's nursery. First, let me say that it's stunning once installed - I can't stress that enough. The crystals are real glass and not plastic, so the lamp really shines. Once it's hung up, the lamp looks absolutely beautiful. However, it was more than tedious to install. I wouldn't suggest doing this alone unless you have tons of time and are incredibly patient (neither of which describe me). Part of our issues was some electrical wiring, but at one point four people had worked on the installation of this light. And it took two of us working together to hang all of the crystals. Two helpful hints: 1. When hanging the crystals, use the larger hangers for the large crystals and the smaller ones for the smaller crystals. Seems simple enough, but they just throw both sizes of the crystals together in the same bag and it wasn't until we had hung a bunch of them up that we realized our mistake and had to take some of the crystals down and start all over. 2. The directions claim that you need E12 100 volt 40 watt bulbs. We couldn't find them at the local home improvement store, so we just used plain old candelabra bulbs and they work just great. Plus, they are way cheaper than anything else we found. So to recap: Really tedious to install, but absolutely gorgeous in the end. I really can't wait to show my daughter her room.
