Yay for March!! Anybody with me on that? I’ve never been so happy to say goodbye to a month. I feel like February was a bully, and I was picked on all month..haha. It’s okay though, you just got to keep on keeping on. One fun thing that did happen was that I finally found a piece of furniture that I have been searching long and hard for. We are going to call this find an antique church pew, but I’m still not sure exactly how it was originally used. The lady that I bought it from told me it was a church pew because it has a place in the back to hold church hymnals, but I’m thinking it could also be a vintage movie theater seat. Whatever it is, I’m so in love with it!
Antique Church Pew Find
So, I went on a little pickin’ trip last weekend for my booths and stumbled across this amazing piece. I bought it telling myself that it would go perfectly in one of my booths (wink wink), but after it came home with me, I brought it in my house just to see what it would look like in front my new planked wall . Of course, I loved it. Let’s be honest, I knew I was keeping it the whole time.
It fit perfectly in my hallway. I had always pictured a vintage church pew there, but I love this unique style too. I especially love the three fold-up seats. My kids have already started to use it for a quiet little reading spot. It makes me so happy to see that it’s already getting used, especially for reading. That’s a win win in my opinion.
I think for now I will leave what is above it. This wall piece looked good above the table that used to be there, but I’m thinking it is a little too big for the bench. My goal is to maybe add a couple of shelves with corbels above it. I think that would compliment it even more.
So, after seeing it, what do you guys think?? Church pew or movie theater seat?? Any other ideas? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
I hope you guys like my fun find as much as I do! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!
