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've seen some pretty dramatic rescues in my day. But this chair that Heather of The Heathered Nest picked up....well, let's just say this does beat all. Even I would have driven right past this hot mess!
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.
When Rhonda from Craft Dictator got out of her car one rainy day to rescue this chair from the roadside, it wasn't for it's seating potential. It was for the legs, she tells us, "I knew I could use the legs to make something useful and beautiful."
Sometimes a piece of furniture is fine as it is....other than it just doesn't look right in the space you have for it. That was the problem with this wicker chair in a corner of Christina's bedroom. "My inner battle was that the chair’s finish was pretty as-is. It just didn’t go with the room," she tells us on her blog, Operation Home.
When Dena from Hearts and Sharts told her realtor than a basement workshop was a must for her--since she loves refinishing furniture--her realtor was quick to offer her some of the furniture languishing in her own basement. So....this project is courtesy Dena's real estate agent, who passed along these Louis chairs.
