Supposedly the fan and the fixture are the same finish and they are from the same company - but I am sure you can imagine the minor stress we feel buying something online without having a chance to see it in person first. Hopefully the two items won't look as "different" as the photos suggest.
Once the fan arrives and is installed, I'll give a "consumer report" on it. Hopefully it will be good. I am guessing anything will be better than the white monstrosity that hangs in the room now. It should also go a long way to transforming the room from the Southwestern motif rendered in "oh so tasteful" 80's pastels to something a bit more traditional Arts & Crafts.
Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Halloween.... ...might this room be finished by December???
