ooooo.....she's a prize!
this sturdy bench has vibrant red and blue colors and quirky fonts of a vintage snack tin, combined with deep, warm empire-red painted wood - unique and fun, functional art!
it is perfect for many occasions, from providing height for little ones to reach the sink to seating around the fire pit, to acting as a small table for outdoor picnics and tailgating. it is a very versatile piece!
the bench is made of farmhouse flooring planks, painted in a rich, empire red chalk paint, then distressed and polished with several layers of clear and distressed wax. these layers bring out the scratches, dings and dents of the wood and add to its appeal.
Meant for those who share an appreciation for vintage advertising, I have cut, filed and attached a piece of a vintage snack tin to decorate the top of the bench. The tin held 'Crouthamels Prize' potato chips.
The top piece of this sturdy bench is rectangular, measuring 18 inches by 11 inches and it is a half inch thick. Total height is 10 inches. The tin piece is first glued, then firmly nailed in place and has been put through the barefoot test, to ensure there are no sharp edges!
