Today, we have a special guest, Betty. Betty doesn’t have a blog, but she sure made an awesome bench with upcycled chairs, and I knew you would want to see it!
I found these 4 chairs on the side of the road. They were suppose to have white cushions but were black from wear and tear. I had no idea what I was gonna do with them, but I knew that the cushions had to come off.
Upcycled chairs make an awesome corner bench!
After replacing the front wooden parts to the 2 end chairs, that gave me a base to attach the wooden slats for the seat. The upcycled chairs corner bench came together very quickly after that. I know its one of a kind and I will probably never come across another set of chairs that will fit so nicely together as to form the curve that these upcycled chairs did.
I just started a facebook page called Redo's Thank you again Gail for being such an inspiration, I think it’s awesome that you can work with all the tools necessary to get your projects done. And because of you I have mustered up the courage to pick up tools myself. I still need a hand from my hubby occasionally but I am no longer afraid to try them alone.
Oh my! Do y’all love this bench made from upcycled chairs as much as I do? Betty doesn’t have a blog, but she does have a new facebook page. If you are on facebook, hop over and check out Redo’s. If you have a great project and would like to do a guest post, let me know. All are welcome at MRL
