We have had this bench for years. In our previous home we also had a covered front porch and I always pictured a cute little bench there. I saw this bench at a local home improvment store and knew it would be perfect and I loved it's design.
When it came home with us it was a medium wood color. After we moved to our current home I stained it much darker with a Minwax stain to a mahogany-type color.
Now I ADORE it and think it will stay white for the remainder of it's days.
It looks so fresh and inviting and has inspired me to spruce up my front porch even further. I think I'll add a little coffee table and maybe a little white chair to match and enjoy cups of coffee or glasses of lemonade out here all summer long.
