Question
Could you please tell me what is the scale size of a hanging light fixture over a 42" glass top table..would 18" be too big?Thank you  

Answer
One of the most common mistakes that people make is buying hanging light fixtures too small.  A good rule of thumb is to buy fixtures that are half the width of the table plus 5-6".  Your 42" table could take a light fixture that is 22-26"  Happy Decorating, JoAnne Lenart-Weary www.onedaydecorating.com
