One of my favorite types of blog posts is seeing how creative people take a piece of junk and turn it into something beautiful and/or useful. That is definitely not my expertise because I don’t have the “eye” for it, but I sure do covet that talent.
Awhile back I was wandering through a local antique/thrift shop and saw this “part” of a chair. Why in the world I decided to buy it I don’t know, BUT I DID! (It was only $5 so I figured “what do I have to lose?”)
Well…it’s been sitting around very neglected for awhile now and I really need to either do something with it or give it to someone who loves to repurpose. I decided I’d ask Mr. Google to give me some ideas and here are some that struck my fancy. What do you think?
I love the turquoise color of this chair-turned-coat rack, but it would match absolutely NOTHING in my home…and not sure where I could put it. Not sure I like the legs...I'd probably leave those off.
And here is a similar PINK one. I like the position of the hooks on this one a lot better.
Now this is an idea Mr. Chatter might possibly go for…or NOT! I have a terrible habit of throwing my shoes in a pile on the floor in our bedroom. I have soooooooooo many pairs of shoes, and it’s a real headache to get down the shoeboxes & put the shoes back in, yadda, yadda, yadda! Not sure this idea would be a whole lot better than my pile on the floor, but it did catch my attention!
This shelf idea I could go for…and Mr. Chatter could probably easily fix this right up for me. It could hang on my porch OR in a bedroom.
This would be a super cool idea for a party. I don’t know what that round part is though and it might be hard to find, but could probably be adapted.
I love this idea if you have a similar chair…which I just happen to have.
Of course, you’ve probably seen lots of planters similar to this one, but aren’t those colors with the green chair just delicious?
I really love this chalkboard but I would leave off the legs on the sides. They don’t seem to serve any purpose and just take away from the cuteness…in my opinion.
And then finally, this is a really neat idea that I would definitely copy if I come across such a lovely and ornate piece.
I didn’t think to take notes of where I found each picture, so I hope I don’t get in trouble with anyone for sharing their ideas. There sure are a LOT of creative people out there, and I am truly THANKFUL for them and for their thoughtfulness in sharing with others.
So…which idea is your favorite? Or do you have other ideas for my sweet chair back?
