Love this light fixture!! I ordered this for my twins nursery who are boy and girl twins and it fits great!! The look is so soft and delicate. My walls are a medium gray in the nursery, so this light really stands out. As in other reviews, I will be painting the screw heads white as they are silver and show a little more where the shade connects. I would like to clear up that although it is not metal, like you think it may be, it is a thick, hard plastic, something like PVC, that the shade is made of. I was thinking when some of the other reviewers said it was plastic, that it was a thin, flimsy plastic, but it is not. I am really happy with the quality and look of this product.
