I found two simple eight foot long antique barn benches from a farm in PA for $70.00, in good shape and nearly ready to repaint. Today I stripped the remaining paint for sanding and painting them white for Christian's farm. Soon he will have a dining room floor in his farmhouse and these will match the length of an old French farm table he will use there while leaving the room open to views out the windows on both sides.
Both benches will provide affordable seating anywhere around Christian's farm in case he wants to move them outside onto the lawn or into the barn sometimes.
Beautiful bench seating... more elaborate Scandinavian or French farmhouse and manor house benches!
