How to Disrepair a Chair.

How to Disrepair a Chair.

Ronda’s chairs were so uncomfortable, they weren’t good for much.  Improving your posture? Sure. Making for a very intimidating time-out chair?  Maybe. Sitting comfortably? NO.

So, in her quest to find additional but out-of-the-way seating for her office, she decided to just whack off the backs and turned them into stools instead!  Check it out on her blog Batchelor’s Way.

Here’s a side-by-side.  Notice how she rounded the posts to match?  You can’t even tell!

And here’s an awesome idea if you have old chairs and tall dogs. Matt and Jacque at The DIY Village had a shaky set of old chairs that weren’t suitable for sitting, but didn’t know what else could be done with them.  Until someone mentioned needing a raised pet bowl, then WHAM-ZIZZLE! (That is the sound of inspiration striking.)

Here they are in action. Awwww.

    Love the chair idea! I have the same exact chairs, and now I know what to do with them when I end their life! 🙂

    Cute idea but Id never do it with the water bowl…it would be everywhere and ruin the chair anyways:) Super cute idea though…and helpful for those doggies!
