I just received this light tonight after only placing my order 3 days ago! Gotta love overstock's quick shipping! The light was well packaged and it helped to read the other reviews to know to not throw away the diffuser by accident. The whole process of installation would have been a breeze, but the hole drilled into the diffuser (the piece of decorative glass attached to the bottom to hide the ugly bulbs.) was drilled at an angle by mistake so the glass did not properly fit onto the pole. My husband had to spend 30 minutes filing the hole to make it fit properly. Based off other reviews, this problem is fairly uncommon- just our luck. In the end, it is beautiful! Even with the filing the whole installation only took about 1 hour. Perfect for our new baby girl's pink-less nursery!
