Our Project for Luca

Luca is lovingly restoring a 33 year old Colonial Home and needed a Bench for the Sun room.  Nothing ornate, nothing too pricey...hubby is still reeling over the sticker shock of so many things for the new home.  Her request was for a Black Bench to look old.  So we used reclaimed wood and built in the fashion she requested.  Planks (like an old Farm Table), but distressed.  So...Here it is! 
Plenty of detail, Very Heavy...Sturdy! This Bench measures 5 Foot in Length and 14 Inches Wide.   She wanted the cross leg style, but we added a another bar on the bottom of each side. Perfect to rest under the window with all of her collected "Stuff" or, to perch on for extra seating!  If a plant or two needs to find a home, that's ok too!  I did a Paste wax finish.
The Extra Bar on Each Side.  Rough and Worn, as though it had been around for ages and not just a few short days!
These sell for $45 in what ever finish you wish.  I looked around in the catalogs and found a similar one in Ballard Designs.  A 3 Foot Pine Bench sales for $199 .  Please tell me what you think...I love your feedback!!

I think one or two of these would be great for a Farm Table....and a couple of Windsors on each end!!

I have a Project in the works.  Hopefully the weather will clear enough for me to paint and enjoy the work.  Check back often, things change all the time!

Just an update...The Door Display Shelf has been reserved by Sweet and Sassy of Dothan.  Go and Visit their store!!  Sweet People....great prices!!

The Vintage Bench and Crate found a New Home with my Friend Beth!  Hope your Mom is doing better!

Stay in Touch...I am Only a Phone Call or Email away!!
