So... I was browsing Pinterest as usual and I started seeing pictures of pews in the foyer!! What??!! I love it and I needed one, so I began hunting craigslist. There are lots of pews there, but not too many that I could afford, so my hopes were dashed... Until I found these babies!!!
So.... When we got the pews home and measured them, they were 7-feet long! My entry wall is only 5 feet wide plus there is this weird awkward column in the way so technically, I needed the pew to be no more than 4 1/2 feet long. Time to tear it apart!
Actually, this is still a work in progress... You can see the particleboard in the legs and my plan is to chalk paint the pew a bright accent color, even though I hate to lose the beautiful wood grain!. I also want to add a shelf above the pew with hooks and decorative items, baskets underneath, etc... All in all though, I love it and I am so happy with it!
