The colour is a little 'softer' in real life...
A lovely, original and genuine old pine and painted bench, real character with this one!! It dates from the mid Victorian period around 1870 - 1880 and is just fabulous!
The paint is also old (original finish, later over-paint (old probably 50's) and some light re-finishing during restoration) and has now distressed through age to create a one off piece of furniture. This is not a faked look, this is 'time worn'. As with virtually all old pine, some old (long dead/ treated anyway) worm character but only really on the back. This is the real deal and for a fan of proper character! Having said that, it has been prepared/ restored ready for immediate use with good tight joints and the paint is stable.
This will look fab wherever you put it - as a statement piece in a glossy modern kitchen against a light/dark background or sat against the wall of an old cottage. It just works!
