Antique Pinapple Bench Up-cycled Antique Pineapple Bench. We gave new life to this antique pineapple 3/4 bed. We re-purposed the headboard as the back of the bench and used the matching foot board as the side rails. We then built out the seat with lumber and painted it in a true black. It has been hand distressed. This bench is a petite adult bench so would be great for kids to use easily as well. A perfect seat for an entryway or the top of a stairway or mudroom! Wax & Buffed Finish.
