We purchased this item based on the limited photos you can see via the HomeDepot website. The item looks like a simple black fixture with a plain standard smooth black finish. Upon receipt of the item, we unboxed it to find that it's actually covered in an ugly sprayed on gloppy textured finish. It looks like it was vomited on and then painted black. The texture is like bits of dried rubbery paint bits were slung at the fixture.
When we returned the item to our local store, even the woman that processed the return commented, "wow, that's really ugly" before we explained why we were returning the item.

I don't know that I'd compare the texture of this fixture to vomit...it's more like sneezed-on. If you're looking for a satin black fixture, then this isn't for you. However, since I won't be studying this once it goes up, this works great for me. The price is right, the color is black (not bronze) and it holds plenty of bulbs to provide more than enough light for my bathroom. I did deduct one star from my rating because it doesn't provide wire connectors or screws to mount it to the electrical box. Seems like the past few fixtures I've installed came with everything you need for installation...

This was the only light to put over my vanity. I waited months for it to be available. Months. Finally it was available, I was sooooo excited that I ordered it just as soon as I could. It finally arrives and my husband opens the box and one of the globes to the lights is cracked. I call Home Depot customer care and they order this part. Everything seems great, then I receive an email today stating that the replacement part that I requested is on back order until 8/11/14. Not very excited anymore.
Unique, Looks Great, Stylish, Very Bright, Nice Design
The fixture has a simple, contemporary style that matched the drawer pulls in the bathroom perfectly. It is still very bright with 40 watt equivalent LED bulbs albeit with the usual LED delay in turning on. 3 issues regarding installation: The mounting plate required some modification to get the required orientation for installation to my electrical box.. Easily done with a drill and the right sized bit. Also, the unit comes with plastic spacers which fit in between the lamp bases and the glass shades. It takes some adjustment to get the shades to sit properly and all 4 aligned. Lastly, the unit is attached to the mounting plate with decorative nuts via screws that need to be adjusted in height to get the right fit. I had to replace mine with shorter ones than those provided to get the right fit. None of the problems was difficult to solve but each added time to what otherwise should have been a breeze with the appropriate parts.

I purchased this light for a small bathroom with a narrow vanity. It is quite flimsy and is not worth the $130 price. (A more appropriate price would be about $38 in my opinion.) There were two problems with the unit. First, there are issues trying to mount the fixture. The universal adapter mounting plate does not fit a standard duplex electrical box. I had to drill the adapter plate in order to mount it to the (new construction) electrical box. Also, the light's two trim screws are vertically situated and they interfere with the electrical box's device mounting holes. I had used plastic adjustable duplex electrical boxes in my bathroom rehab so luckily I could recess the electrical box 3/4" further into the wall to allow the fit. If you are using a fixed box that is flush with the wall surface, you are out of luck - the fixture will wobble. Second, two of the three glass globes cannot be tightened firmly into the metal mount and remain loose.
