I am SO disappointed in this! I've had my eye on this cross for 2 years, and my husband surprised me with it. I received it via UPS today, and it looks almost nothing like the picture. There are no beautiful, rich wood tones - it's a dull, matte black that comes off when you touch it. The carving is not nearly as detailed and intricate as the image in the picture - everything is flat, with grooves to show the swirls. The black finish is stopped all over the cross, so it looks dirty and cheap. I don't know if I am going to return this, or attempt to refinish it as another reviewer did... but, since this was my first experience with Dayspring, I can't say that I'm likely to be a repeat customer. For the price, and the drastic difference between the picture, and the item I received, I wouldn't recommend this. I wish I could post a picture...
This is a most beautiful addition to our new home. It is stunning and can't wait to hang it.
For the price I was disappointed in the finish. The wood was black with a sooty, chalky powder coating that bled all over the cross. Not at all the beautiful bronzy brown pictured. Instead of returning it, I opted to wash it down and use my acrylics to redo the finish to look like it is pictured, It turned out gorgeous. My paints were much cheaper than the cost of return shipping.
My time--1 1/2 days. It is beautiful on our wall.
This piece was a gift to a very quality discerning person. She loved it and it will hang in a prominent place in her beautiful home.
I purchased this beautiful cross for my own home, but when my daughter and grandsons moved into their new home, I just knew it would be perfect - and it IS! It hangs in a prominent place for all who enter to see. We love it!
