New Uses For Old Chairs

 Hi y'all! I hope you had a wonderful week.

I was sitting here trying to think of new ways to use some broken chairs that I have (no, I do not EVER throw anything away) and after looking online for awhile I found some great ideas.

So, if you are like me with bits and pieces of old chairs in your storage space here are some great ideas for using them.  Enjoy.

Add a old piece of wood to make a shelf. I've actually done this before.

Cut the legs down and stuff the seat with a cute fabric and you have an adorable dog bed.

Not much left but the top of the chair? Use them for clothes hangers. They are just the right width!

Add cork board for a message center or chalk paint for chalkboard.

I love this idea! Add hooks and make a coat rack.

Hang several parts together for decorative wall art.

Who knew? They make really gorgeous picture frames.

It seems that chairs make great towel racks.

Put two or more together and add lumber, a cushion and cover with pretty fabric and viola! You have a bench.

No seat?  Just insert a flower pot and you have instant yard art. :-)

Turn two upside down and top with a surf board and you have a sewing table. This redesign made by Robert Kalin founder of Etsy.

Rearrange chair parts for a unique guitar stand.

Add rope and a tree and you have a unique swing.

Missing the cane or leather seating? Insert glass for unique side tables.

Turn children's chairs into these great dog feeders.

Use chair spindles to make a unique magazine holder.

Chair to sign.

So many uses for old chairs! I had no idea...Hey, where did you go?  Oh, you're digging through your old chair parts.  

So you're inspired are you? Good! Then my job is done.

Have fun and oh yes, be sure to come back and share your masterpiece at Transformed Tuesday. 

Until next time,

I love the magazine holder but can't seem to find the source. Your link just takes me to Pinterest but I've tried so many search terms and have not been able to find it. Can you point me in the right direction? Great Blog!!
