Over at Clockwork Interiors, Cynthia was looking for a few small projects she could work on. She remembered her stash of chairs in the garage awaiting TLC, and decided that it was time to breathe a little life into a few of them. “They are so comfortable, and I love the fact that they came out of someone’s work shop!” she says of this set of three handmade, vintage chairs.
Jane at Honey & Roses had been using this hand-me-down pine kitchen chair as a step ladder but knew in her heart that it deserved better–“time this old girl had a makeover!” Check out the simple do-over-that turned this chair from stepping-stool to showcase!
“I almost missed these bamboo chairs as my dad and I went cruising past them one day. We quickly doubled back and snagged them and I am sure glad we did!” says Jess over at Bright Green Door.
Suzanne at The Painted Drawer offered to help her neighbor with this little desk and chair set. “They were both painted a bright blue for him when he was a little boy and now are going into his daughter’s room,” she says, explaining the reason for the makeover.
AT Oh My! Creative, Susan explains that this old, broken chair was a source of mild contention between she and her husband. He has wanted her to get rid of it for the past ten years. On the other hand, she tells us, “At nearly 100 years old, and a garage sale rescue from my mother’s attic, I knew it was destined for greatness.”
When one of her neighbors had a yard sale this summer, Paula spotted this chair. She didn’t want to pay what they were asking, so she was thrilled when this chair ended up on the curb after the sale was over. Paula shares the makeover she gave this chair at Sweet Pea.
“When my uncle was clearing out his basement he gave met his little vintage child’s chair that he found,” says Shanna at Restoration Redoux. The chair was ornately carved but was banged up and had stained upholstery.
