Fortunately, I'm all out of profane words for the year (used them all up putting in this light) so I'll keep this review G rated. We were excited to get this chandelier for our new home, as it looked like the right color/design for our dining room with high (18 ft) vaulted ceilings. We ordered this an another chandelier for the entry way, which btw went up in about 15 minutes. However, this light was an absolute nightmare to install. The instructions were useless, as the one page sheet seemed be a list of 6 unfinished statements. Although the height of our ceilings added to the degree of difficulty, the canopy and nipple set up for this light make it quite difficult to install. The paint from the canopy and canopy ring was literally rubbing off as I fumbled to try and get the wires connected. There were also several other places on the chandelier where the paint came off (this was also noted in the previous post). This fixture definitely requires two people to install. Also, be very careful when threading the chain to make sure the wire is straight and able to withstand a little twisting when you go to install the canopy ring. I had the wires from the ceiling fixture disconnect three times when twisting the canopy cover shut. The light looks great now that it's up, but we were seriously considering putting it back in the box and sending it back. Great light for the price...but be warned about installation issues.
