Shabby Old Church Pew

My sad old church pew has found its way to ebay.

Its in need of restoration, and some tender care.  

We used to live on the Warwickshire/Northamptonshire border in the UK, which is where this pew was from  originally, a little church in a village where we lived, were making more room and selling off surplus pews.

We paid around $400 for it 6 years ago, it weights a tonne, and suited our little cottage.  It has loads of character.  And in the right house or setting would look fab.  A couple of coats of varnish and some pretty cushions would make all the difference!!


It even has a couple of hooks in the back to hang a kneeling cushion, and a shelf to keep your prayer book.

What made you decide to sell this church pew? This can be a beautiful pieace in your house if you’ll just refurnish it, just like what you said here. Is it already sold? I’d love to keep it and restore it. ->Earnestine Kettering
