We painted several benches with a 2-part car enamel paint. You can paint the bench cheaper by buying an unfinished bench and using standard oil-based paint. We do see seepage of oil coming through on lighter colors. The darker colors seem to mask the oil. Painting the lutyens was a bit of an experiment.
This item ships fully assembled via FEDEX FREIGHT or other carrier.
SPECIAL SHIPPING ATTENTION
item ships fully assembled via FEDEX FREIGHT or other carrier. This
bench cannot ship GROUND and must ship freight.
The shipping rate for the Lutyen's bench is $139 in the 48 states. If
you plan to purchase (2) Lutyen's benches, the quantity discount will
adjust the total by $79 - thus making a pair of Lutyen's only $199 for
shipping ($139 + $139 - $79 = $199)
Again, the Lutyen's are fully
assembled and not the same shipping price as a standard 48" or 60"
knock-down bench that ships GROUND.
Shipping Freight Break-Down
1 Lutyen's $139 ($139
shipping per unit) - the basic minimum "floor" rate for residential
2 Lutyen's $199 ($99.50 shipping per unit)
If ordering more than 2 Lutyen's benches, check the special set prices.
