Be sure to visit Diane over at A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words to see what others do with things that have been thrown away by someone else. My treasure today was pretty close to a "dumpster dive". Actually, a very good friend of mine had an old 8 foot wooden church pew sitting by her dumpster several years ago and I asked her if I could have it. She said I could. I took it home. It needed lots of repair and we didn't need it to be 8 foot long. My husband cut it down to 4 foot which wasn't easy because it was curved and the ends had to be taken off and reattached. He completely reglued it. We decided to paint it after it was repaired. I've had this pew in my home since then. My friend has had some regrets about letting me have it!
