Let me just say that painting Shiplap is no joke! First you have to cover the holes with spackle & chalk before painting it.

I took down the old satin panel curtains we brought from our previous home in favor of a linen shade from Target that doesn’t take up any precious floor space. This is a skinny dining room after all!

We had hoped to keep the window bare but winter sunsets were problematic for anyone sitting on the pew so we gave up and added the shade.

Church Pew Makeover

I have long been on the hunt for the perfect church pew for our farmhouse.  Our home is the headquarters for many family dinners and holidays so seating can often be at a premium.  Church pews are great because they can fit a lot of people without sacrificing much needed floor space.  We found this pew for sale on Craigslist at a local antique shop and were very excited by it's size and craftsmanship. furniture makeover / hydrangeas and watering can

  1. I’m afraid I agree with Jason. The church pew is too large and adds a formality and stiffness to the otherwise beautiful table and upholstered chairs. Benches that move somewhat under the table would look great and make the room appear larger. Your kitchen and dining room remodel is so beautiful (without the pew). You and your family do such amazing work both inside and out.

  2. Tara I absolutely love the changes you’ve made to your dining room and house through the years. The shiplap looks amazing in here with the paneled fireplace wall! And I love white on moulding – a lot of work to prep and then paint but so worth it, the whole outcome is just stunning!!! I have to catch up on your kitchen next!
