I was disappointed with this fixture mostly because of the acrylic cover. If it were glass, I think i might have considered it. The plastic-like cover made it look like a toy rather than something special you'd want to attach to your house. Plus, I wasn't sure that it would hold up to the elements over the years. I learned my lesson and will only seek out glass the next time. I'm returning this one.
