The Pew Chronicles

I acquired 2-11 foot pews and kneeling benches from a funeral home remodel a couple of years ago. I had zero ideas what I should do with them but it seems to always work.

The pews have been moved a couple of times to the duress of my wonderful, sweet and patient husband. 

A couple of weeks ago the pews came to the front of the project list. 

My pew has been completed and is getting ready to be moved to its permanent home. 

The second pew still needed a new life. What to do with an 11 foot pew? What will a person do? 

The basement has not been a topic of conversation much on the blog but yes, in Florida, at the old house, we have a basement. 

The basement was dark and stinky. Full of junk that absolutely no one would want. I had a couple of ideas for the basement during renovation but while packing up Mom and Dads house, I noticed how much memorabilia Dad had. 

Car trophies 

A fancy truck bed couch

Records and cassette tapes

Dad needed a man cave so the basement has been turned into a retro place of enjoyment 

What does a vintage, car loving, Elvis listening space need? 

It needs a diner table using pews as benches!!

It starts like this 


It was cut in half 


It was painted hot rod red. 


The table was my first purchase in Ocala at a thrift store. 

The table was cut on both sides to be retrofitted for the space. Add a leg to the front and painted white with a red stripe. Of course it must have a pin stripe like an old car 



Ya’ll…..

Come on!!

I can’t even.


I see a raging game of dominoes played on this table.

I love it when a vision comes to life.

I had a picture in my head

Spoke it out loud to my ridiculously talented family and poof.

Done and fabulous.

Have a great Tuesday friends!
