I was so excited to purchase these panels. They are lovely. Expect much variation in the carving - to me that is a large part of their beauty. HOWEVER, the panels that I received were a honey color with a few streaks of dark brown here and there. I was under the impression from the stock photo and description that these were in the dark brown/black range. These would not work where I planned to put them, being so light. I couldn't justify the additional expense (and work) of sanding and re-staining, so they had to be returned. If you do not have a preference for color, these may be perfect. I wonder if the wrong panels were sent to me, though the box sticker did say 'Black Stain'. Unfortunately I can't seem to figure out how to add a photo to this review........
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Not even close
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Variations to be expected in craftsmanship (actual carving) - color nowhere near what was expected
- How accurate was the sizing? Not sure - I didn't measure as I knew they had to go back.
- Would you recommend this to a friend? No
the beauty, price, and size of this piece are outstanding! I've looked at pieces this size and found them closer to $1000. I hung this on a very high wall and it adds so much drama and interest. fast shipping, quality piece!!!!!!
