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!)

Hi there, what a lovely & generous giveaway you had. I have this solid oak dining room set, it was my grandmother's. I recently got it back from lending it to my mother. Now I'm deciding what to do with it. The chairs still sell between $140 - $180 :) I think the chair you're sitting on in the Beautiful pregnancy photo matches my antique dining set. Does your table have pull out leaves at both ends that pop up & slide into place? I really like the painted version of the chair :)ReplyDelete
The padding is worn down, the adjustments are not as functional as they used to be, your base is scratched, or maybe your chair is even flat-out broken. laywayback.com/recliners/best-selling-chairs-under-200/ReplyDelete
You guys out there are performing a great job.ReplyDelete
If purchasing a used chair is too much of a risk for you, there are also plenty of brand new chairs on sale that may fall into your price range. Many internet retailers run specials on chairs on a weekly basis with great savings to incur, so be on the look out for bargains if shopping online.LaywaybackReplyDelete
