This Chair is Just Right

This Chair is Just Right

Do you need a stool but only have access to a few chairs? Well, if you also have access to some sort of cutting device, then you’re in business, my friend. Sole chopped down these traditional chairs and recovered them with IKEA fabric to make a pair of super funky stools. Check it out on her blog Cachivache Decora, which the often unreliable Google Translate tells me means Furnish Trash in espanol? Oh, Google Translate, you are a riot!

And this chair was donated to Melanie from MMB Creations, whose reputation as a chair whisperer had spread. She rehabbed the rain-damaged mess into a shiny, spinny little seat for her grandson. I know my kids would love a little red chair just their size for twirling. Thanks ladies!

    Thank you for featuring my little red chair. I was really excited to see those chairs made into stools. I have some broken chairs that will be great!
