I’m completely obsessed with our new entryway antique church bench! G wanted seating in our entryway for getting shoes off and on, and I wanted more antique items in our home, so I asked him to keep an eye on Craigslist for an antique church pew or theater seats. Imagine my shock when he found the perfect combination of both the very next day!
This gorgeous old piece is a connected row of four seats rescued from an old church in Wisconsin before it was bulldozed. They’re 100 years old and in incredible condition! They’re connected across the back, but each seat bottom lifts up individually, which is so neat.
Even the finish on them is perfection. They match our entryway space beautifully, and I love the natural signs of wear they have on them from over the years.
I’m so glad these gorgeous seats were saved, and that they’re now ours!
Also new in this space are those hooks. G and I found them at IKEA when we were in Chicago for spring break. They’re all metal and so neat! They’re the IKEA PINNIG rack with 3 hooks in black. We hung two of them side by side to sort of mimic the look of one long rail of hooks.
Now we just need some art for over the hooks and a nicer rug for when it’s Not Winter and our entryway decor will be complete!
