This cabinet is the Exact color of my country french dining room set. It did take us about 5 hours to put together, but, we are not handy people . The directions, however, were easy to follow. It does have a strong pine scent when you open the doors but it is a nice pleasant scent. It holds quite a bit of groceries and I managed to retrieve all my iyems that we scattered in different stashed areas of my kitchen. The only regret is that it only came with 2 adjustable shelves in the large section (could have used 4 and asked overstock if they were available----no----so I have to double up on the cans on top of each other. It is an attractive piece in my dining room.
