Come and see how she did it. You can even make single stools. Like I said…brilliant!
Sadies Seasongoods has such an original idea when she turned this chair back into a Farmhouse Scarf Rack. It’s perfect in every way especially the hooks made out of old silverware. A little bit of sawing…sanding …staining and imagination and your will have a perfect piece like this one too.

Brooke over at All Things Thrifty had 4 chairs…2 she used for her Dining Room Transformation and the other 2 where a bit tattered. Well when her hubby asked if they could go…she put on her thinking cap and came up with a great way to use them. She didn’t have the time to reupholster them…so she turned them into wonderful frames! Great idea don’t you think! See how she did it and start looking for chairs that have the same possibility…talk about a unique piece for a Gallery Wall.
