This is a great way to repurpose old chairs into a bench.
Today, I am featuring a project from Rose. She’s one of those friends we all have, that we feel we know so well, even though we’ve never met IRL (in real life). Rose is a major influence and inspiration for me. She is always there for me to “bounce” ideas off of! Well, that’s the back story, on with the project. These 3 not so lovely chairs found a new home with Rose sometime last year.
Soon after Rose got possession of these chairs, she started to make a bench. Then, like a lot of us, she got distracted by other projects for quite some time. I believe they sort of got buried in her garage, and forgotten for several months.
This summer Rose dug the bench out and completed it! I love the color, I think it looks like stain, but it is paint. The fabric is an old slip cover that someone (dh) had gotten gum on.
I love, love, love the way this turned out. Rose, you rock!
If you would like to see more of Rose’s finds and projects, she has a blog, check it out Confessions of a Curbshopaholic.
