If you’ve been a regular visitor of my blog for awhile, you may remember the grain sack typography chair makeover I did a few years ago (seen HERE). Well, today is a day of totally trashed chair projects, and I have other typography chair to show you that I finished, as well as a broken chair that I turned into a shelf.
Here’s the first chair. I bought it at an auction several years ago, and stored it in my barn loft, where I promptly forgot about it.
The bats and birds have been enjoying it though… blech!
The chair frame needed some minor repair, but the seat cushion was another story.
It was completely trashed, and the wood seat base was rotten.
About an hour later, here’s what the new seat looks like!
You can see the full tutorial for making a stenciled seat cushion at My Repurposed Life, where I’m a monthly contributor.
This typography stencil is the newest Vintage Sign stencil. It’s available in 2 sizes in my online shop HERE.
Now, onto the next chair.
I absolutely love the wood grain and seat brackets on this one, but it had one major problem…
One of the back legs was broken off.
My husband removed the other back leg, and cut the seat just in front of the pretty brackets.
I cleaned it up and gave it a fresh coat of stain, and it’s gorgeous and useful as a shelf.
I’ll be making it available in my online shop this weekend, but I will have a hard time parting with it.
I think it would be perfect in a farmhouse bathroom or bedroom.
If it doesn’t sell before we finish our bedroom remodel, I’ll keep it! Those seat brackets stole my heart!
Vaya con Dios,
