Looking for some ideas about repurposing a pair of antique church pew ends other than a bench--I have two rather large benches already here at home-one Hungarian box bench with original paint in the dining room and a beautiful black Parson's bench up on the landing.

I'm stumped!

I love acquiring architectural pieces and am aching to do a project-winters been tediously long up here in the U.P.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

What about a small bookshelf or planter shelves for a kitchen Herb garden?

Melody, I can't wait to see what you come up with. I don't have any ideas for you, but I bet what ever you make is going to look so neat!

I saw a fire wood holder on pinterst that was cute, if you have a wood stove. :-)

I was thinking an narrow entryway chair-gotta sit and put on my boots but not really sure about that either-- I didn't post another snap of the ends-but there are brass plates on each arm rest portion indicating what the number of the pew is--I have #1 and #2--just a nice little touch.

Thank you for the great ideas-Corbels would be awesome, but I found a giant pair of wooden gray and weathered ones many years ago at a yard sale for $60 and they are positioned in the entry of my kitchen and dining room. Keep those ideas coming!

Oh those are beautiful! How about an end table or planter box?

Oh, Melody, what a treasure! I've been searching for a church pew for a while now. I would love to have one as my entry way bench. One day.

What about using them as a corbel, turning them upside down, perhaps on your front porch or something? Perhaps a head board? I would check pinterest for some ideas, too! Please share what you end up doing with them!
