This is the first piece I’ve ever sold—to a friend who wanted an entryway bench that wasn’t fussy and fit a particular space. This piece is all joinery—no screws or nails. Made of poplar. Finish is white milk paint with gray underneath, sanded to reveal the gray on the corners and then poly. Paint from Real Milk Paint Co. Poly is GF satin oil. 30 wide, 16 tall, 12 deep.

Congratulations on avoiding nails and screws, that can be an enjoyable challenge.
