Vintage Yellow Bench

Yellow Bench - vintage, lots of old dirt and wear. Nice lines. 
After keeping it home (in my kitchen, on end) for several weeks I gave it a good cleaning and put in into my booth. There is absolutely no space anywhere in my home for this great piece of vintage furniture, and with winter rains and ice it couldn't be left outside.
The structure is great, love that authentic dirt!
I took several photos so that the structure could be copied by anyone with some skill in building furniture.
Same aged look as the 1950's Painted Drop Leaf Kitchen Table I posted about - and from the same estate, with 7 months in-between purchases. 
Purpose built furniture.

Notice that the base/feet shapes are similar.
I am guessing the same person made the table and the bench.

  3. Two great solid pieces! Too bad you can't keep the bench. I know how that goes though. We can't keep it all. Someone is going to get lucky at your booth!

    You, made a great find!

  11. Joy ... love that bench, well, I love almost all benches, but that one is really special and so well built. May just have to try to copy it. Could use that design for a sofa table too.
    Hope your days are just great and the weather is not to bad.
