"Jack" a broken chair becomes a Halloween stool!

13,946 Views
This chair had a few broken spindles so I removed the back and filled the holes with wood filler. Then I used ASCP's Barcelona Orange and CeCe Caldwell's Vermont Slate to make a Halloween stool. What was once destined for the trash has new life as a cute decoration. I'm also using the spindles to make dragon flies, so don't toss those broken chairs...repurpose them!

    What a creative reuse. Like you, I love painting interesting designs onto chairs. Tricycles, American flags, Coke logos, you name it. I've put it on a chair! Love yours. Very inspiring.
