The Best Farmhouse Repurposed Chair DIYS and Ideas are going to enlighten you on how versatile a Thrift Chair can be! From Shelf to Bench and more!
Chairs are a part of our every daily lives! We use them all the time to rest… to work… to chat with our friends and family and so much more! However… we usually think of them as a place to sit! But today we are going to look at them a little bit differently. You know…see their full potential! You won’t believe how many imaginative ways you can transform a chair into a planter… a bench… even a towel rack. Have you ever thought of using your chairs as shelves or to hold a vignette on the wall…well you will now! Have you tossed away some chairs that were broken and you thought you couldn’t use any more? Well you might want to rethink that after you see some of the projects that await you. So DON’T throw out those chairs…even if they are broken…I think you will be giving them a new purpose in life really soon! Now here is a suggestion to you all… If you find a chair that is broken or for a good price and it has SPINDLES… snatch it up an cut all the spindles out… use them for handles…ornaments… embellishments and more! They are PRICELESS!!! Harvest the legs and if they are broken and the back of the chair is good… save that for a million and one uses. Even a chair that has seen a million better days has something to give… just look into its soul and you will find it. ENJOY!
Photo Display Chair
Over at Mamie James you see an old chair that got a quick and easy makeover. Twine was simply strung around the back of the chair and it formed a clothes line.

Does this strike an idea???
