I’m a lover of chairs, chairs of all kinds! So many people toss old furniture aside when there is still so much potential for it to live a long and useful life! Even when a it is stained, missing a seat, or at the very least just the wrong color, there is always hope.

Did you get a new idea? Maybe some paint, stain, or stenciling? I currently have at least 6-7 in my stash, just waiting for a makeover or a new purpose. How about you? How many are you hoarding saving?

I love the new look of your site, Gail! Thanks so much for including my chair shelf in this roundup - I love repurposing old chairs!
I really need to make a bench of chairs, I love those. Wonder if I have chairs in my Shed 'O Sh!$?
What an AMAZING new site. :))))) You go!
I love your new look and everything looks so clean and organized!
Happy day friend!
Thank you so much KariAnne!
It's still very much a work in progress... but isn't it always?
happy day right back at ya!
Umm, probably have 24ish chairs in my project stash. Can't resist them! I have just gotten to the point in my life where I can actually work on them. Just did 4 in Sherwin Williams lipstick red for a friend. And finishing up 4 in black for another friend. The deal is that whenever I finish up a set, I seem to get the old set for my stash! Good news, bad news. The pile never seems to go down! Thankfully my parents have a huge attic that I can keep them in. Thank you Gail for the Homeright inspiration - it has been an awesome partner in getting the chairs done! They turn out so beautifully! Great gallery of ideas, too. Thanks for sharing!
hahahah that's so funny that you move 4 chairs out and get THEIR old chairs in return. having 24 chairs is better than having 24 dressers, right? I'm so happy you're on the Finish Max bandwagon. Isn't it a game changer? so easy to change up any project, but for chairs? A definite life saver. Keep us posted if you do any of these projects with one of your 24 chairs. 🙂

Oh my gosh I LOVE all of these! Especially the dog bed! I need to make a cat bad and now you have me thinking I could use a chair frame. Thanks so much for including my chair makeover too!
