Transitional 1 Light Outdoor Wall Sconce from the Seaside Collection
"Brushed Nickel" is really spray paint
I don't know what's worse...the quality of this product or the fact that my original bad review has mysteriously disappeared. I purchased the "brushed nickel" version of this lamp (unfortunately 3 of them before the price dropped) and these are not true brushed nickel. They are a spray-painted lightweight metal. They look and feel cheap. The image they are showing of these on the site is either doctored or perhaps at one point these were really made of a better metal and then they cheapened the material, but they DO NOT look anything like what is pictured. As I mentioned, I had originally posted a negative review along with pictures and they have disappeared. I imagine this review will disappear as well. If it does, I will never purchase from Lighting Showplace again.

Like the look - not the durability
I had 4 of these lights on a house on the Chesapeake bay. They did not hold up to the wind and one by one they broke. The problem is the shade vibrates in the wind which causes metal fatigue where the 2 arms attach to the wall base. Like other lights a this price point, the metal is very thin gauge so it bends very easily. If you are locating the light in a place not subject to wind or getting bumped it should hold up fine. Also, be aware the paint will fade over time. I spray painted 2 remaining lights and they look great . . . But the winter winds did them in.

Nice light, but no ability to attach a globe
A previous reviewer noted that this did not come with a globe - even though it is shown with one. The bigger issue is that there is no way to attach a globe to this model - so if you are trying to match ones that are already installed...you need to keep that in mind.
Other than that - the light is as shown in the photo.

Love the LIghts
The lights are just as described! The color is great and the size is perfect. The lights are hanging on our pool pump house and light up the swimming pool area.
We are quite pleased with our purchase!
