I’m not sure what happened to my before picture, since I took it SO long ago, but they were these kind of pressed-back chairs that you see everywhere, but in much worse shape.
I lined them up and attached them together with some scrap wood that I cut to size.
I then spray painted them with my favorite silver metallic spray paint, Rustoleum Bright Coat Chrome, and added a black glaze to antique it and make it look like pewter:
I’m just glad I could salvage some part of these chairs and repurpose them into something cute and unexpected. It makes me happy.
I’m really getting discouraged with the sales and marketing aspect of furniture upcycling lately, so I guess the forced break for birth and newborn days is coming at an opportune time. (Baby is scheduled for induction two weeks from tomorrow!!!)
Since I don’t want to sell this headboard, and I have no use for it here since there’s not a queen bed to be seen, how about a giveaway?!?!?! (I’m not able to ship this, so unfortunately this giveaway is only for locals, within pick-up proximity to Prescott Valley, AZ. Please pass the word along to any Arizonans you know who might be interested as well!)
