To be honest, the description and the photo on the site are very accurate, but some how it´s uglier in person. I was looking for a rustic and unusual lamp but the result was poor. I didn´t like the shade finishing and the hole lamp is more weird than rustic. The other problem is the size. I read the description, found it was too high, but decided to give it a try. Now I know that´s too big for my nighstand. I´m send it back.
