How We Made A Church Pew Perfect For Our Dining Room
Having a traditional and old church pew to be part of your dining room setting is one of the things that you may want while doing some renovation at your home or cottage. In most cases a church pew can be found in a local sale or a yard sale and it might need more changes done to it so that it meets your expectations. A church pew fitting as part of the dining table setting may not be an easy thing for friends and family to accept, hence going above and beyond to make it stand out should be the main goal.
There are people who have been able to successfully make a church pew be part of their dining table and we will be able to look at how they did this in this chapter. The pew had a cushion that did not fit into their design so when they took it back home, that for sure had to go. For a long time before the purchase of the pew, it had resided in a dingy storage hence cleaning it first was in order. On the other hand nothing was wrong about the state of the pew hence there was no need to repair any hinges or the pew as a whole. After tiding it up with some water and letting it dry in the sun, it was time to remove the cushion that was not in a reusable state. The reason why the cushion needed a replacement was that it was torn, had also been stained and definitely did not look presentable.
Dealing with the state of the cushion was easy when they realized they knew of an antique owner who was in the business of repairing and fixing up things that were either antiques or from a farmhouse. For the cushion they wanted they had to buy first a fabric for it from their friend who had an online store and have the antique store owner make their desired cushion from it. The cushion that the antique store owner made was perfect, fitted their vision and was even more than what they expected. It was not only enough to have the cushion in place, but also to make sure that the screws were also in a perfect state. For the pew not to be weakened by the shift in weights that it was going to constantly support, it was important to have the pew slightly adjusted.
Although painting a different color on it would be a great alternative, they feared the paint getting dirty over time and they saw it fit to just apply sealant on the wood.
From reading what other people did on their DIY pew one can be able to get a wider scope on what to do with theirs.
