Here is what it looks like now. You can see it's got sort of a chestnut color stain.
Here's another photo - notice anything in the background? I just got new white draperies to add to the dining room to replace the green drapes that were there previously. The white gives such a crisper, fresher look and really makes the green drapes look dirty.
I think painting the bench black would give it a cleaner look too. What do you think? I've also got some fabric on the way that will be used to make another pillow for the bench. I love mixing classic pieces such as Windsor seating with up-to-date fabrics and accessories.
This photo below from Traditional Home magazine is some good inspiration for going with black paint on the bench.

I've got several painting projects on my list for the spring including the dresser in our bedroom that I really want to get done. Hopefully spring is right around the corner with the way our weather has been here. What paint projects do you have on your list?
