A Gift for Our New House

No, we're not moving. But yes, I did buy a gift for our "someday" house. I found this vintage church pew at an antique show recently for a steal, and just couldn't pass it up. It's 55 inches long, which is waaaaay too big for our tiny apartment, but I figured if we couldn't find anywhere to store it I could always sell it (though I don't really see that happening any time soon : ).


Here it is in our living room, though we moved it after photographing it to our bedroom. I'm still trying to decide whether to keep it squashed in the house or make it live in the garage until whenever we move.


The white paint and curvy details are what sold me.




Don't you love the arms and the arched detail? I can really see this in an entryway, with baskets underneath for storage.


We can just replace our tv room daybed with this, right? I'm sure Matt wouldn't mind watching football on a wooden bench all afternoon : )

  9. That is one cute thing! The church pew looks incredible in your apartment. It perfectly complements the color of your wall. I also love the “wood markings” that are visible despite the white paint. They add crisp and warmth to the overall look of the church pew.

  38. The rise in the number of homeowners who are underwater on their mortgages has increased so much that a very large number of them have decided that they cannot afford to stay in their homes. They would rather sell their home and buy a comparable home for a much lower price, and take the loss so that they can improve their cash flow situation by having a lower mortgage payment each month. And since there is no shortage of properties to buy, these people had no problem finding a suitable home for a good price. And another result of the rise in available properties is that more and more people are becoming first-time homeowners. Since prices on homes are falling, more and more people are able to afford a home for the same amount they are currently paying in rent. So the logical choice for these people is to buy a house rather than continuing to rent. These factors all lead to one thing - a higher need for real estate agents to help the buying and selling of all of these properties. Therefore, even though prices have fallen, the quantity of available properties, buyers, and sellers has raised which more than makes up for the lower prices in terms of how much a given real estate agent could make in the current real estate market. And as we all know, the more clients a real estate agent has, the more properties they'll sell and the more money they'll make. houses for sale in counce tn
