Guys. We close on our house on May 1! Just a little less than 2 weeks away. We’re getting deep in the zone of packing, list making, Goodwill donating, and Craigslist scouring.
On Monday night I was scrolling through endless pages of furniture on Craigslist when I saw the post for “Church Pew $100.” I pointed it out to Karl and said “look, someone is actually selling a church pew!” We both took a second look at the picture and said, almost simultaneously, “that would be a great bench for the entryway!” I quickly saw this pew in our new house – maybe we’d paint it a bright color, we could add a cushion or pillows, maybe some storage baskets..
.the possibilities were endless. One email and a day later, and the church pew is hanging out in our garage, waiting to move to the new home. The best part? The pew is only 4 feet long; it was custom shortened by the previous owner to better fit in her home.
I’m thinking when it’s all said and done, this pew might look a little like this:

Finally, a sneak peek of the house! I’m so excited to have a real fireplace and a mantle for all sorts of decorating. More photos to come once we have the keys in hand!
