If you want to save yourself utter frustration. . .hire an electrician to assemble this light fixture. It comes well packed but the instructions are vague and hard to read. Once it it assembled it looks nice but the light cap above the fixture are painted gray and should have been a shiny chrome. The chain itself is gray and should have been shiny chrome as well. We have it in our dining room and it looks terrific but do hire someone to assemble this fixture to avoid undue stress!
