I’m excited to share my Church Pew! I had this for many years in my Entryway…..painted it several times…red, yellowish, white, and maybe another color at some time. I love this pew!
Earlier this year I sent it to the backyard so I could bring in a smaller, classier, bench so the pew spent a few months in the backyard. Snow + Rain + Outside + Not-covered-very-well = Paint bubbling and tearing right off – exposing beautiful wood! I got out the trusty sander, bought paint stripper and sandpaper, and got to work. It took a bit of work but it was worth it!
I was to impatient to get ALL the paint off, as you can see in some areas. No worries because my home is not about being perfect…trust me!
This is the before and after with the other bench. What do you think? Which one do you like?
