Honestly, this piece if gorgeous. It's so cute, very shabby chic...perfect for my bedroom. But, if I was rating the assembly, the time, trouble, pain in my fingers from attaching over 100 pieces together...I'd rate it a ZERO. My fingers are killing me just typing this from being pricked by all those key-chair wires. The instructions are ridiculously impossible to figure out....worse than Ikea directions. When I finally attached all the crystals (aka glass pieces) after almost two hours, I had to somehow figure out how to shorten the chain. You can't. So it's all bunched up and looks tacky.....I have to find some handyman (aka my boyfriend) to cut the chain and wires. So overall, after all the trouble IT IS WORTH IT. Not tacky looking,decent quality, you get LOTS of crystals. Very chic.
