Have you ever had a piece of furniture or decor that had special meaning - perhaps a family heirloom or an item given to you by a loved one - but it just didn't work in your space? That was our coffee table situation.
Have you ever watched "A Charlie Brown Christmas?" Well, if you are familiar with it, you know that part when all the kids are making fun of that twig of a tree and Charlie Brown tells them all that he doesn't care...that it will be perfect...and besides, that little tree needs him? That, my friends, is how I felt about this antique church pew.
While I'm hesitant to call it trash, this rocking chair I bought off Facebook Marketplace was in really rough shape. It was dirty, the wood was rough, the paint chipping, and nail heads were popping out in some places. But like any good project piece, it had one important thing: potential.
