We love painted benches because they are versatile. Benches are perfect for entrances, dining tables, awkward nooks that need "something" to make them attractive and for extra seating during large family gatherings. The bench comes standard in white, but can be custom painted. All of our painted Yankee Modern items are made with solid maple and handcrafted by artisans in West Virginia. We use maple for our painted pieces because it holds paint better than the other woods in our hardwood collection. Please visit our custom painted wood section. Our other natural hardwood options are cherry, oak and walnut.
