RECYCLING DINING CHAIR LEGS - shabby chic bedside tables



There are so many unused and unwanted
dining chairs out there. Every thrift store
and charity shop I go to have a selection.
Most people have a chair or two in their
garage. There are some great up-cycle
projects out there already on Pinterest
and I would like to add one more to the
list with the help of Annie Sloan Chalk
Paint.




The backs of the chair can be reused in many ways, coat and
towel racks, and there are several wall display ideas out there.
The reality of many of these chairs is that they are being mass
 produced over seas and do not stand up to daily use for long
 in most kitchens. The chairs I use had already been repaired
 and falling apart again. I also use some of the chair's seat
 boards to reinforce the frame of the nightstand to receive the legs.


To see a full tutorial on how I add legs follow this link:


This bedside cabinet was painted in a creamy white mix
 of Annie Sloan Old and Pure White. It has gentle
 edge distressed and finished with AS clear wax.

  1. You have me saving all the parts of furniture for future projects. My husband thinks I'm nuts, but I know they'll make great "do-overs" in the future. Thanks for all the inspiring ideas.
