Turn a Chair Back Into a Unique Wall Shelf.
We have been remodeling our main bathroom. It is a labor of love. Our house is 96 years old. I am trying to use a lot of antiques and old parts and pieces of tables, chairs, knobs etc. that I have collected. I needed a wall shelf in the bathroom. I decided to use a chair back. I had already used the seat part of the chair as a footstool.
The project cost $0, as I had everything I needed in my workshop.
After separating the seat and chair back I began prepping the chair back. I started by sanding and washing it.
Completed the sanding and cleaning.
I added 2 drawer pull knobs to be used to hang towels on. At first i spray painted it with a Hammered Black but, I didn't like the outcome. I then painted it with Behr High Gloss Black enamel. AHH, better!
Before attaching the shelf to the chair back I painted it. He then attached the shelf to the chair back by countersinking a screw through the board into each side.
We placed a picture hanger on the back, placed a nail on the wall and hung the shelf. I love the outcome.
Items not yet added to the shelf but, I wanted you to see the area where the shelf is hung.
