I loved the piece. I wished the color had come out warmer, though. Maybe my fault because I didn't send a sample of what I was trying to match. It looks more blond in real life than the honey tones on the computer screen. Will probably try to get it refinished out here.
Thank you for your order from Chilton and for taking the time to share this feedback. Fresh-sawn cherry is pale in color, almost like maple. The good news is that after a few weeks of exposure to light, it begins to darken and after a few months (with the exact time depending on the amount of light exposure), your piece will begin to take on that warm, reddish, honey color that cherry furniture is known for.
Please reach out to email@example.com if you are not seeing that darker color develop to your liking in the coming weeks before getting it refinished. We will make sure you are delighted with your order!
