I made this map chair about six months ago.
Sweet Amanda, my most favorite daughter in law, liked it and may or may not have said that she would steal it. In order to save her from a life of crime, we started thinking about planning a day when her buddies could come over to Star Hill for a girls only craft day. Chairs in the country are crazy cheap so I got busy. I picked up these six beauties for @$5.00 each. I have also been collecting ideas for what to do with the chairs. Here are the chairs needing adoption by the girls and some links to great chairs for inspiration:
Yep. They really do look like a hoard in the Garagemahal. I have 6 chairs that I have spent a total of $25.00 on. At prices like this you know that some of them needed love.
This beauty needed parts. Hubby had to make the cross pieces.
Here is a line up of the chairs that have been collected. I kind of feel like the SPCA trying to get someone to adopt pets.
The Blue is strapping hubby used to re-glue the legs. All good now.
We were watching Baby for our friends and she attached herself to this chair.
I think this old beauty would look cool with the slats painted in Ombre shades of one color.
I have a thing for mission furniture. Love this beauty. Will look great uphostered and painted.
This beauty needed love to be ready for the chair day. new parts, glue and screws are in. Victorian feet, rosette at the top back, and a great shape.
I have two of these for the party. They have a lot of detail in the back and will really show off a glaze.
Here are links to some inspriation chairs: Red Painted Chairs, Blue Chair,French Chair, White Upholstered Chair
Here are All Things Thrifty’s Week of Chairs. Love them
I have been picking up fabric in the remnant section and have even collected a few wild shirts from resale shops that might work for the seats.
The girls are going to bring paint from their projects along with what I have in the hoard.
I am looking forward to showing off the results from our chair affair.
