Where the aged green base paint has been worn away, an underlayer of rust colored paint and the natural pine come through giving this country bench a real cottage feel. Painted flourishes of pink and white flowered garlands follow the outline of the curved back and arm rests. This style of bench was made to expand for use as a spare bed. Once the seat is removed, the base pulls out and a mattress would unfold to fill the space. The bench is sturdy, sealed with a wax finish and is ready to be used and enjoyed.
