My New OLD Church Pew!

My New OLD Church Pew!

Y’all. I never ever ever thought anything would ever come between me and my Railroad Bench. I’ve had this bench for about 4 years…..and it’s been one of my favorite pieces. But a couple weeks ago when I was out picking for my Shop…..I found the most incredible Church Pew my eyes have ever seen. Originally, I purchased it for the store. Because…that’s what I’m supposed to do. Buy things for the STORE.

The entire 20 minute drive home I went over ALL the reasons that I should keep it. “You’ll probably never find one like this again.”  “You struck gold with this one.”   ” It belongs in your house…”.   I asked my husband to talk me out of it….after all, we don’t have ROOM for another big piece in our house.  He failed and actually suggested we keep it. He’s very helpful. 🙂

In order for us to make room for Le Pew, something had to go….and it only made sense to replace a bench with a bench. So, we said our goodbyes to the Railroad bench and off to the shop she went. (and she sold within 4 hours….so that tells you how amazing she was!)

I had to rearrange my Office a bit to make room for the new – old Pew and it probably goes without saying, but I LOVE IT. I actually love the room arranged this way too!

Disclaimer: This is a functioning Home Office. I spend a LOT of time in here, so this isn’t your typical perfectly styled – everything in place – no clutter at all – kinda shoot. I use all those catalogs on the shelves daily. They may not be pretty to look at it, but I have to work y’all. And I need them accessible. As well as everything else you see! 😉

Anywho….I just love this room. It’s nice to have a space of my own that I can get lost in.

    So pretty! I love your style. Have you tried putting that gorgeous filing cabinet caddy corner? (Centered in the corner) It would face out and show off better(?) I Love it, and everything else too!

    I have a small two drawer filing cabinet that has the wood grain look, but of course it’s metal/tin something cheap. Anyway, I need to clean it out and start using the cabinet for our household files, taxes, etc. BUT…it’s ugly! Do you have any suggestions on what to do to make it look better? Would/Could you paint it? May be put it in our bedroom, so would like for it to look nice. Thanks! Love your Blog and your home! Everything always looks great!
