The picture does not do it justice as it looks more dark cherry wood, this picture on site looks disgusting when viewed after I got mine. This pic of the cart is waxed and bright lighted to death. I was missing one crown and had no trouble getting it shipped and correct color one at that from overstock. Oh, remember to make sure they are all same crowns and colors as this comes in gold crown with dark cherry or silver crown with dark cherry. Lucky I got gold.
