CHURCH PEW DILEMMA

kjoy1

Hi guys:) I got my hands on a church pew from the church I went to as a child and was married in. The ideal location I would like to put it is in this bay window near my kitchen table. Pros...it is a perfect spot to sit and watch my kiddos in the backyard and watch the sunset. Cons...I feel like it might be too long for that area and possibly an oak overload with my oak hardwood floors and oak table. Looking forward to your opinions...




Love it
Hate it

Funny surfboard story...It was the beginning of our marriage after having our first child. I wasn’t working a lot but wanted very badly to buy DH something special for Christmas with my “own” money. I decided I wanted to buy him a surfboard to use when we traveled to California every summer. I scrimped and saved for months but finally was able to buy one. At Christmas he was ecstatic and couldn’t believe I had done that for him. Fast forward to

the following summer. We strapped the surfboard to the roof of the car and set out for the two day drive to California. We did most of our traveling at night because of the little one. On the second night we traveled through some sort of windy desert valley...hubby pulled off at sunrise to get gas and switch drivers...and the surfboard was gone! We drove back and looked for hours but was never able to find it. Can you believe that!!! Now we laugh about it but at the time it was quite painful.

kjoy, that story is sweet, sad and hilarious! How wonderful you did that for him and it inspired a vacation. That must have been some wind to not have noticed the surfboard blew off the car hahaha!

I just bought that chair Seajay! I've had my eye on it for a long time, and was able to get a decent price at our local Pier 1 closing sale. I have noticed I can feel the slats through the cushion (just thought maybe I needed to do some squats to firm up the derriere). Thanks for the tip on how to remedy it.

kjoy, you're right about the rattan chair. It's in our family room. One of these days I'll post a whole room photo for you all to help me with some finishing touches. Your room reminds me of ours in some ways with the ledge and longer rectangle with a fireplace at the end. Your fireplace is amazing. Mine, not so much. In fact, that's why I haven't posted. It's embarrassingly unattractive LOL. Is your room half underground like mine?

The Pier one chair is just a bit too British colonial for me..needs to have a more casual coastal style if you go that direction..that’s why I just loved the Serena & Lily chair.

Well, we all have great taste, don’t we? 😉. The thin black material is all that covers the slats. I cut 1/4” thick Plywood about the size of the black cloth and put rubber non slip carpet pad over it and then the cushion. It’s more comfortable and sits firm, maybe like a bench seat. I don’t use it in my living space but in the guest bedroom so comfortable isn’t paramount. I don’t think I would recommend it as a comfy chair in the family room. Just being real.

kjoy, that’s a good point most especially for a family room. I’m wondering if anyone will actually sit in this chair (thinking comfort, etc.) or if you should focus on a look that dovetails with the cali-surfer experience? Just think the sectional might suffice for “real” seating? I do like the idea of having the individual chair for balance and variety?

I like a higher back for that spot. but not too big and bulky. It seems to balance the visual weight of your sectional better in my opinion. Keep in mind I'm not a pro and you're in the space seeing how it really feels.

Keep it fun. That spot is just an additional chair for extra seating. If you really need a proper chair there, go fun with a swivel, so the person can swivel to the TV even though their view might be bad, but you could always slide that chair away from TV for temporary seating. That swivel comes in a variety of colors.

Sorry I always come out of left field and I didn't know you were looking more closely at the striped wingback, but I'm going to go ahead and post this more modern swivel chair. Not sure of the color of gray as the picture looked blown out on the website. You could probably rub n buff the legs something warmer to go with the picture frames; otherwise, it kind of goes with your side table. I thought this jute basket side table was cute and Society 6 has fun beachy side tables. After seeing that photo of the walkway between the sectional and wall, I'm wondering if you have room for many of these chairs in that corner.

I hear you Karen and to be honest at first was photoshopping lots of neutral beige chairs in that spot but many did not look right compared to my very large and beige sectional.

kjoy, I’m on the mend. Slo process! Now that I see the rolled arm chair behind the sectional and more brown with the desk chairs, it appears except for the fireplace, the room is more traditional than I initially thought. I do think a break from the darks and browns would be nice next to the fireplace. If you were to think in terms of gradation from dark to light in this neutral room that might help with the choosing. You have an underlying pink tone (not yellow) in your carpet and fabric choices so the 2nd lightest hue in this new chair should lean toward the same pink undertone. I seem to think there might be both yellow and pink hues in the tiles of the fireplace. It’s hard to tell. The pillow I chose is lighter than the chair, leaning toward the fireplace tones which reinforces the mid-tone of the chair next to the lighter fireplace. The introduction of other colors is important and most especially the red surfboard, which reinforces the red/pink tones you have throughout. So in my mind your search would be for a more traditional wing chair than the one I put up...same style as the striped one you are contemplating. I like the height of a wing rather than another low profile club chair. I would keep the chair textural and neutral and have a back pillow with the pattern or continuing with the cali-surfer theme of your other pillows. i agree with Jules about no more blue. Blue is the only hue that will clash with whatever other blue you already have in the room. It’s a culmination of lighting and the beast known as bleu!

So glad you posted one of your chairs from upstairs. I almost commented yesterday that my fave so far would be one of your swivels haha. What do you think? Are you wanting some wood showing?

Kim I like my swivel there:) I enjoyed that I was able to swivel between watching tv and facing the sectional but I wouldn’t say it is a must have just a nice to have. Size wise I liked the height but it could be taller and I thought it was a tad to long for the room. So far I haven’t found a spindle in a color/fabric that I like in my price range...

I cant find the pic in your thread here that shows the other side of the room. I ask because I am wondering if you could use both of your grandmothers chairs on the other side of the room directly behind the long end of the sectional. two chairs with a small table to act like a games table. literally the table up against the back of the sofa with two chairs on ends of the table. I know you have a wall with a desk and maybe another round table, but cant remember... if you do have a round table how about putting those two chairs with that round table?

I just recently bought the $119 Pier 1 chair for my daughters' apartment. I asked the sales woman if she recommended any pillows for it as I thought it might need lumbar support. She said it's designed not to need one, but some people like to throw one of their sherpa blankets on the seat for looks and maybe just for something soft under your tush. I tried it out in the store before purchasing. She was right...it's very comfy especially for long legs. It might not be your go-to for curling up, but it's unique and fits your vibe. That black rattan one always catches my eye when I'm in the store.

Kjoy, pardon me for a minute...

Seajay, it’s me that will be stopping in Gatlinburg in a few months on the way to Savannah. When the Ellen fans here started buying up her art you’d presented, I got a little worried that there might not be that many of her works left at the gallery since you’d said they wanted to keep her art because it was popular, and called them. The ones that are my favorites are still there, but because of the prices I did not purchase over the phone, I need to save more $$ to be able to get what I want 😏. I will tell you, I literally cried both when you shared Ellen’s latest prognosis, and when you were on your way to pick up her art from the gallery, I thought I’d lost my chance to get her art I wanted!

She has been so blown away by this interest in her art. And I think my brain just kicked in. You’re interested in the four fruits if I recall. I will ask the gallery owner if can do better if all four are purchased. Don’t have much pull anymore. But don’t be afraid to bargain with him.

Seajay 😘, yes! There are others I like, but the fruits are my favorites 🥰, I made a gallery wall around our TV with large open flat frames on which I hang original art or crafts, like mini quilts and cross stitch made by family and friends that I change out with the seasons or on a whim. At Christmas it’s wreaths. It doesn’t feel like clutter when it’s a grouped collection and I get to enjoy more things. I think Ellen’s fruits will work great, and they would make me smile thinking about 2 very special sisters!

Kjoy, I was thinking the same about no reason to spend money on a new chair if you already some you want a place for.

If you like them in your bedroom then no harm keeping them there.

But if you’d like to use them (or one) down here then I think it could work. I’d reupholster the seat and have the tall pillow in the same fabric.


Even though they are roughly the same size, the other chairs seem to have more presence bc more of it is covered in the Fabric.


Im sorry about your coffee table. That sucks. I guess it’s better than you finding the damage later And having to deal with reboxing and returning it. But still a bummer.

It will depend on how much they will credit back to you. They may not want it back so that would be optimal. The broken pieces look repairable and the crack filled. Duplicating the finish will be the most challenging. Bottom line is $$$ in my opinion.

Where is it from? Many places these days will send a new one and say keep the broken.. They don’t want it either.

If free, keep. If not back it goes! Those repairs aren’t that easy to pull off. But if free, worth a try. Sorry for all that aggravation! My only suggestion is if you end up keeping it, the stark white near your dark leather pieces seems to much. But, you could do a light wash of some tone to hide repairs and help blend it in. Would it work in downstairs room? Or is it too big. Maybe switch ottoman and table since seems easy to put feet up on? Maybe try styling it first. All depends on what the seller does.

Ok Flo. Thanks. Nice thought about switching. I will measure before I drag it down there because it is heavy! The tray, candle, and small plant were my attempt at styling it 😂🥺🤪

I called Coleman Furniture , about 10 days ago , with a question about a Hooker dining table. They said they would have to contact their supplier to get the answer. They took my phone no. and email. I have heard nothing. :((. Normally, I would be proactive and have called them back by now. However, it is not something that needs to be purchased right now , and if it were , I certainly wouldn’t go with them if that is the service just to get a question answered ! Lots of fish in the sea.

Kjoy, did you call customer service? I would start with talking with an actual person if possible. And tell Them how absurd the box looks.

Ive never bought from Coleman Furniture and your experience will influence my decision to ever do it. So also mention that if needed!


Our school district has spring break planned for this upcing week and also cancelled until March 31. We have plans next week anyway. And honestly, I’m hoping to maybe get a few home projects finished while I “work from home” 😂🤣

I know it is a hardship for some and it’s been nice to see our community already come together and offer help to those who need it.


Oh! Also, I actually really like the papasan chair in the basement! I think I’ve seen one that swivels too So maybe something to search for. It has a beachy and relaxed look that goes with the rest imo.

Thank you Nicci and Pool. Ugh. I have a feeling this is going to be a bear to return. So far I have just been following their directions on how to return/exchange something and it says to email them a request first 🤷‍♀️ So far they have been quick with their responses but have a lot of “demands”. I will call them on Monday. Having my kiddos at home is not a hardship for me either and to be honest I am giddy that they are at home with me. But I know for others this will be very difficult as they cannot just take off of work. My husband has orders to work from home as well. I would volunteer my service to others but with our recent lice episode I don’t know if anyone would bite 😬 Pool. I didn’t think I would but I too kinda like the beachy, relaxed, fun vibe that the papasan provides. It doesn’t give me much height but maybe a tree or lamp could help with that...

kjoy, we also had problems with damage on an item that would have been a bear to repackage. We got a supervisor on the phone and told them we were taking pictures of the box and the item and told them we were sending the photos either by email or however is easiest for them and that they needed to have the item repackaged by their people with a pickup they issued with no expense to us. We told them price was not negotiable. The final decision was for us to keep the item. So I know often times being reasonably smooth and knowing what should be done, brings the vendors to their senses. Good luck!

Sentimental and purposeful purchases beats perfect design every time. I say, add comfy pillows on each side and enjoy watching your kids play. Way more important than stressing over it. My two cents.

Pool it is like a fast game of solitaire with multiple people playing. It is also called peanuts and nertz. We play it slightly different than this video but the concept is the same. I would say it is for ages 10 and up. My 5 yr old helps one of the adults put their cards in the middle:) I hope this link works.

Now I have taught my children and my twin sister comes over every Saturday night to have dinner and play nuts with us :)

Latest update on my coffee table... The damaged item will need to be returned.

Please repackage the item with the original packaging and have it ready for pick up.

We will reach out to the carrier and will advise once the pick up is scheduled. When the item is confirmed picked up, a replacement order will be processed.
