Capiz Shell Chandelier

I've always liked the idea of having a chandelier in the bedroom.  Unfortunately my bedroom is in the attic and there isn't a flat ceiling anywhere.  And to make matters worse, when we built the upstairs, we didn't have a very good plan of where lights should go, and so we ended up with waayyy too many recessed cans.  I did contemplate converting one of the canned lights into a chandelier using one of those can converter kits, but I didn't want to spend too much money.  So instead I've cleverly disguised the can that is directly over the bed with a capiz shell chandelier from Pottery Barn Teen. 

I'm still in two minds about it.  I wish it was more opaque and white.  It reminds me of a jelly fish.  The kids seem to like it, despite the fact that they are now unable to jump on the bed (not that it was ever permitted, of course).

Here's how it looks.
