old chairs

You know, when I chose this topic, I was first thinking about old beat up chairs given a whimsical second life. The kind of projects that have you making a dive for the vehicle because you just caught junk fever.

Kinda like this one from Hoosier Homemade. I love this rustic front porch display!

And how about this charming rustic wonder by Flat Creek Farm? Don’t you love how the weathered wood against the burlap and succulents give this a very neutral palette? Totally droolworthy!

 And then there’s the moss/sweet flower garden variety, like Going A Little Coastal’s plant chair.  What a fun pop of extra colour the chair gives off!

And then there’s the variation where old chairs really don’t look old any longer at all. One of my favorite chair makeovers is Miss Mustard Seed’s dining room chairs. I love the tone, distressing and of course those to die for one of a kind grain sack skirted chair pads.

Check out these ooooo lah lah lines on this pretty little thing by Going A Little Coastal.  Gorgeous! I am LOVING the antique white with the glaze.

Another chair trend I’m really enjoying are the skirted slipcovers, like this sweet variation from My Repurposed Life.  The dark woodwork really pops against the light slipcover, which can provide a nice anchoring effect.

(Thank-you to the gals that sent me their links via Facebook!)

As you can see, the sky’s the limit where old chairs are concerned. Have you worked on an old chair project you’re particularly proud of?

The 3rd themed linkup is waiting for your version! Let’s see whatcha got!

  1. Thanks, Donna, for featuring my li’l succulent chair 😉 I am completely honored to have a droolworthy chair!! Thanks also for all of your inspiration.. in so many ways.

    Love the other chairs as well! Can’t wait to check out all of this week’s links 🙂 -Tammy

  2. Thanks so much for the feature! I really appreciate it! I “almost” forgot to pop in and link up, I’ve been so crazy with this Back to School Giveaway Bonanza 🙂
    Thanks for hosting! It was fun to add some more of my chairs!

  3. I should’ve taken a picture of all the chairs stacked up in garage waiting for something to be done to them!

    I love old chairs, always have. For years, I had an old chair with a flower basket as the seat, sitting in my bathroom. I had never seen another one at the time. I sold mine about 12 years ago, and then all of a sudden I saw them popping up all over the place. Guess I should’ve held on to it.

    There’s one in my mom’s barn that is triangular, with three legs. I keep meaning to bring it home. It’s at least 100 years old, and it’s dainty, and I just love it to pieces. Don’t really have a place for it, but you know how that is. 🙂

    Love all the chairs you’ve posted here today.

  4. Hi Donna,
    Thanks for asking me to link up my dining room post. I promise I’ll link up some original projects in the Fall when my oldest is back in school. Hope you have been having a great summer. I was so glad to see that you and your son got to go camping. I hope when Levi turns two next year we can start going camping again.
    Blessings, Lisa

  5. Thank you so much for the feature!! Little clarification though hehe I used the cricut to just cut out the words where it says “Paulo’s Watch Box” The rest I bought, including the box already made, the scrapbook paper. I applied the paper on the box with mod podge. Hahaha Thanks again for the sweet feature!!

  6. Aww, thanks for showing Moma’s chairs on your sidebar! I got out the laptop and showed her. She doesn’t know about blogs, but she writes a weekly column in our local paper, so she was tickled. I gave you a little shout out thanks, today! Lezlee
