I need your help here.
What could this little piece of furniture be? Thoughts?
My friend found it and thought it could be rescued. I’d say it looks pretty good updated in 2 coats of Eulalie’s Sky – one of the newest colors in Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint line. I mixed the paint up bonding agent. After waxing it, I lightly distressed it.
Seriously, is it a bench? Or maybe a little side table. Piano stool?
Oh, but if it is a bench, why does the back snap closed like this?
It crossed my mind that it could be a kneeler of some sort. Maybe for a funeral home. But there would probably be a cushion. Unless it doubled as a seat too.
Either way, it would make a quaint landing area in a small entry way. A place to toss keys and mail and even sit down to put shoes on.
Plus, you can always snap the top closed over the junky mail pile when company comes, right?
So what do you think this bench was in its former life?

I think I need this…
I have seen these used before either as a small table (telephone—remember those???) and a small bench in foyer or mud room—
This is a piano bench! I have one just like it that came with my old, long-gone player piano. The seat back of mine is covered in leather. I love how you have refinished yours. I may do the same thing!!
Thank you! That makes perfect sense. I guess you’d put the music under the lid when not in use.
Oh thank you for cracking the code!!
