In my post yesterday I showed the seat of this bench.
In all fairness to you all I should show you the rest of it.
Sometimes I find chairs that are missing the top half. Just the legs and seat are there. These are Plain Jane run of the mill kitchen chairs. You know the kind, the maple sets we all ( if you’re over 40) had in our kitchens growing up. They are often incredibly sturdy and I find it a shame to waste them.
Problem is, they’re so… well, plain.
So I decided to dress one up and see if I could transform it.
I took some old stockade fence pieces, some of the blue porch floorboards, and the chair bottom and went to town.
This is what it became.
Painted. I swear the paint matched the seat a lot better than this!
Those are pieces of lath on the top edges, to make the back look like birdhouses.
Gotta go now, it’s trash day somewhere!
