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.
