I got two of these chairs from the curb. I had wanted to make one of these type of benches for a long time. I made this last year when I first started repurposing items. I have learned a lot since then.
I painted it white, on my handy dandy drop cloth. It also was a curb find, sort of. It was given to my daughter from a movie set she worked on as an intern one summer during college. It was really big, so I cut it in half. I planned on using the other half for some kind of project, maybe a floor cloth?
Here is the finished project after I added some paint to bring out the details. It sat in my living room for over a year to hold some special stuffed animals. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with this bench now… I thought I might keep it for some g’babies, but I think I may try to sell it. I can always make another one! 🙂
