Painted Gossip Lounge┬áPainted Gossip Lounge. This is a mid century version of the gossip bench. We up-cycled this solid wood piece to fit into today’s style. It has been painted in a gardenia green and lightly distressed to give a cottage feel to the piece. It has been upholstered in a sophisticated floral. A great piece in a bedroom, a bathroom or anywhere you want a casual lounging chair.
