More Benches...

What could be better than one bench?


A pair of benches!

Last week I mentioned that my Carpenter was building a couple of benches for one of my clients, and here is how they turned out...

I love all of the knots and wood grain that shows through in them!


We came up with the design based off of how we wanted them to look and function...

I am extremely pleased with them and I was actually a bit sad to see them leave our garage! But they look great in my client's entryway/living room and I think they will be a wonderful asset when it comes to hosting the large gatherings that she puts on for her extended family!

Benches are a great option for portable, yet beautiful, seating when it comes to entertaining!

I used

Minwax Wood Finish

in Dark Walnut #2716


Minwax Wipe-On Poly

in Clear Satin

I cannot say enough good things about the Wipe-On Poly!
It was so easy to apply and I love the look that it created on the benches - a hand-rubbed finish was exactly what I was looking for!

We actually like them so much that we're considering making two more and using them in place of our 4 chairs at our kitchen table!

Stay tuned!

There may be more benches to come!
