My table bench

Look at what my dad made for me!!!! I love this table bench.
Let me tell ya, I gave him the wood and dimensions about 5 months ago. He had already joined the 2 pieces of wood together to make the large board about 5 months ago. I was just waiting on getting some legs on her. She was worth the wait!!

I painted it black, then barn red. I then sanded it well to distress it. I stained the whole thing with Minwax Dark Walnut and wiped it down.

As I was taking the plain wooden piece from my parents house, my mom asks, "I don't get it. What is it for?" I need to show her some blogs- hee hee.

Well, it made me happy. I have this really big dining room table that we inherited when my husband's mom past away 13 years ago. We had to refinish it (it was in dreadful shape, even had silver duct tape around the edges-yuk). Well, it has a drawer that contains the leaves of the table and on that drawer door is a label: this is table number 252 out of 300 and the date is March 1, 1896. WOW!
I love this table and its new addition of the bench. have a great day!! Kim

BTW: the black candle holder with the greenery and oranges was part of a WONDERFUL gift from my buddy Char (thanks again girlie)!!!
