The pale green paint revealed on this country bench creates an inviting appeal to sit and relax. This style of bench was found in country farm houses throughout Europe in the 1800's. Layers of paint have been worn off through years of use, including the dominate earth toned brown revealing the pine wood below. It is the remains of green paint that add a cheery touch and enhance the character of this delightful bench. Please enlarge photos to see the layers of distressed finish in detail and the gentle curve of back and legs. Entire bench is strong, stable, level, ready to be used and enjoyed.
