After a few requests for church pew plans I figured I would put it up for a vote on Facebook. Needless to say it was a resounding yes, so I got to work. We had picked out the one that we liked and I wanted to make it look like a weathered, old church pew that had been around for a while. We love how it turned out and I hope you do too! Enjoy!

To get the old look we started by staining the entire pew with dark walnut wood stain from Varathane.
we Jamie dry brushed the pew with serenity blue Chalked paint from Rustoleum. The key to dry brushing is to get a very small amount of paint on the brush. I dabbed the brush on paper to make sure I got off any excess paint. Then using quick strokes, go along with the grain of the wood.
Finally, we applied 3 coats of matte polyurethane for projection.
We absolutely love it. At first we were thinking of donating or selling it but I don’t think we can let this one go!
