This wood bench is great for décor. Set a picture on it, or pots of flowers...our signs...anything! This bench design works well in a skinny space or the end of a hallway. Even though it's intended as decor, our solid pine construction means you can still use this bench as a quick seat for putting on your shoes in the entry way or as a conventient bench by the front door. Add the optional shelf to gain a little extra room for shoes, or more decor! This is a classic primitive style bench with function! For a little more space, consider our large primitive bench.
