I wanted a shabby chic chandelier for my back porch and this was perfect. My only complaint was that it was missing some of the crystal pieces. Otherwise, it is a really nice piece.
These candlesticks look nice. Unlike the other reviewer, mine are colored exactly like pictures which is a weathered grey wood color with a white wash over the top off it. The appearance is that of when someone tries to strip white paint off an old wood object, so perfect for that shabby chic/rustic farmhouse look. The negatives are that these are a lot lighter wood than they appear (they don't have that heavy feeling you would expect out of wood candlesticks of this size as they are hollow). One of my candlesticks came broken but it was a couple clean breaks so I determined it was easier to just glue it with some wood glue than to deal with the hassle of exchanging as well as one of the candlesticks is very crooked. All in all, I love the color of these and the look of them but be aware that the quality isn't as great as you would expect for the price and they are not packaged securely enough to prevent breaking in transit. Also, if you are looking to use these with battery operated candles, these do have a metal plate with a spike on them but it is only held down with two tacking nails so they are easy to remove if need be but the candle holders do dip down under the plates so your candles have to be at least 3" across in order to sit on these without the spiked plate attached.
These colorful birds look so warm and inviting especially when you put a candle on the bird holder and light the candle. Since the paint on the tray and birds are distressed they give a look of shabby chic home made look, yet so cute.
I have lots of hooks hanging in my big room from the previous owners' love of plants. I have been looking for something to hang that is not electrical but goes with the my shabby chic vibe. This has a distressed white finish and the whole piece looks light yet expensive. The crystals catch the sun from the window and I have just ordered another to go on the other side. It looks great without candles but I plan to get some flameless tapers for special occasions.
