This ceiling light was definitely a good buy for the price, but it is much bigger than I imagined. It hangs down from the ceiling a full 15 inches so I was unable to install it where I intended. It looks absolutely beautiful when illuminated and was easy to install. However, there are small holes at the bottom of the light shade that are distracting. Our solution was to cover them with electrical tape from the inside of the lamp and that did the trick. Enjoy!
