Dinning Room Bench

This is one of those Thrifty impulse purchases. It was an old church pew and we bought for $60. Lee kindly offered to strip the old yellow color off, with some very stinky chemicals.

We opened up the old trusty can of white paint a couple coats later and a reused cushion from another bench we own,
Our New Dinning Room Bench.
