My Chair Repurpose and Upcycle Sickness!

$5.00
2 Hours
Easy

I have a Chair Sickness - at least that's what my husband calls it. I see a cool chair, decide how he can re-do it and I buy it - but only if it is $5 or less. I decided to put all my chair repurpose and upcycles here. I will add before and after pictures as we get them completed. Hope you like them!

    I really need how to do that - take and post pictures. I am so backwards with technical stuff. Maybe next time I see my son he can show me how. I also rescued a beautiful little rocking chair with a cane seat for $6 at a resale shop. A friend helped me sand and paint it a rich maroon color to match a oval rug with little pink flowers on it which is on my bedroom floor. It turned out beautifully. Since losing my husband and having to exist on a tight budget I have been learning how to re-purpose things for little or nothing. When I see what some of you more experienced do here I am so inspired. Thanks for sharing your projects. I love them!
