The Continuance of Chairs

A tiny expensive can
but well worth it.

The finished chair in its new spot
for now
Continuing on the old one we did in the shop
It's stained.
Now to glue the back piece and replace the seat.
The chair had joined the odd chair collection.
In search of the next and final odd chair...
then I may create something from the ones I don't want.
Always a surprise, even to me.

Love the outcome on the chairs.....make some shelves from just the backs and bottoms and hang them on a wall or plant stands with bottoms cut out. I just love to make things something that they are not. But then you knew I was a soul sister. xoxo Linda

Well that is cool. What colour did you use? We are redoing our wood in "Gun stock".I can't wait to see the finished product.

Blessed Thanksgiving to you all, Gail. God bless. ♥

Well done, I like mismatched chairs! I would like a dining porch with chairs of many colors:)

Ingenious, industrious and creative . . .
I still think you must put your name/initials in your remakes . . .

This was a very timely post for me. I recently brought in two old chairs from our first breakfast set (1961) to use as extra seating. I don't want them to look new so will just use this over the chair as is. I have already sanded some spots to almost bare wood.

Be interesting to see how they turn out.
