ENTRYWAY BENCH

This simple and functional entryway bench makes a great addition to our back door mudroom area just in time for the holidays. The perfect spot to rest all those packages and gifts that come through the door not to mention friends and family! I painted this bench a beautiful bright red color to add some holiday cheer and provide a calling beacon for those who need a spot to sit while putting on shoes. Do you have a spot in your home for an entryway bench? Perhaps a little extra seating for the holiday table?
