All the Wonderful Uses of a Junk Chair

When I first saw this lovely pile of junk, it was a chair sitting alongside the road. By the time I got it into the back of my car, it had already started falling to pieces.  Knocking it around a few times finished the job so I could fit it neatly into a box. This is what’s left; some of the pieces have already gotten new life. The spindles that supported the legs make perfect handles for wood totes.  I made a couple using the wood I rescued from the bon fire pile.  

Even the seat split into nice straight pieces.  I used a couple of those pieces for the “N” in my NOEL sign (still need to paint the sign – it’s sitting there unfinished until it tells me what color it wants to be LOL). 
My favorite is this little hanger.     I attached a few 2×2 pieces to keep it upright and give it support, painted it and attached a cast iron hook I found at Hobby Lobby.

   

I love lanterns!  I picked up 6 of these cream color Ikea lanterns from a Craigslist ad for about $1 each.  I used some watered down black acrylic wiped on then off to make this one a little messy.  

Do you love junk as much as I do?

About southernflaircrafts

I am a very busy wife and mother of two beautiful little girls. I work part-time in a flexible position as an Office Administrator for a financial advisory firm; I love the work I do and am especially grateful that it allows me to be a Mom first. I love to create!! Although I think my creativity was born with my first child, before children I would not have considered myself very creative. My mind is always wandering ahead to my next project, whether it's woodworking, sewing, paitning, or crafting with my kids. I also love blog-hopping (and blogging - I'm learning as I go); sometimes I see things I know I have got to make or I see a great creation and am insprired with ideas of my own. I especially like projects that rescue some treasure that would otherwise become another victim of the landfill.
