This is a great way to repurpose old chairs into a triple chair 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.
Love how this bench continues to grow in Love, all the way back to 2009 when it was made. Would love a copy of the directions.
thank you! There are no copies of the directions. The details that are on this blog post are all I have. My friend Rose didn't give me complete directions for this fabulous project.
Love the bench, looks great !
Just going through some old posts on your blog with my morning cuppa Gail, and have to say how much I LOVE this bench project!! To recreate something so BEAUTIFUL from the...ummm... "interesting" chairs in the first photo is absolutely first class!!

That's a fabulous repurpose of the three chairs and it looks comfy!
Thanks MaggieH and Mel! This baby sat in the garage an entire year. My son and dil just bought a house and it has a wonderful enclosed entry porch, the perfect size for this bench. That's what prompted me to get back to finishing the project at long last. It sure makes a difference when you have a destination in mind for what you're making, doesn't it? I tend to lose interest in "abstract" projects and have a tough time following it through.
Thanks for posting it for me Gail! You're the best!
KyLady from the hgtv trash to treasure site inspired me to try this project, she posted her beautiful bench back in April 08. She was kind enough to give step by step instructions and pictures that were so easy to follow. Mine is not nearly as nice as hers came out. I really love that t2t people are so generous with sharing tips and ideas for projects. Gail, its so great that you are paying it forward with all these great how-to posts! Keep them coming!
