Looks Like New

Very few of the furnishing or decorative items in my house are new. I love old furniture, vintage accessories, and almost anything other people might view as junk. I delight in curb shopping and have picked up many orphans item others have left on the curb. One of my greatest pleasure is seeing if I can make it useful again. So I thought as long as I was sharing one of my finds I would join Met Monday just for fun. You can join the fun as well by clicking the Met Monday logo on my sidebar.


This is one of five dining room chairs I rescued from the curb.
If you look closely at the picture you can see the seat covers and even the wood is covered with mildew.

















After I brought them home I scrubbed the wood down with Murphy's soap and stripped off the seat covers. My dear hubby made several new wood seats for those that were in need of a new foundation.





Then I sanded the wood lightly and applied a gel stain. Stapled new fabric to the seats and I have a new set of chairs. No expense as I already had the fabric waiting for just the right project.

What a find, and the chair looks great! I love re~doing things and making them once again beautiful.
Have a wonderful Sunday.

Paula said...

Wow! That's quite a transformation. You really brought this chair back to life. It's great that you saved this old piece from the dump and made it into something that can be used for many more generations.

I LOVE IT!!! Why cannot I not find things like this on the curb??? I must live in the wrong area!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

You did a great job rescuing the chair. My hubby loves to find things along the side of the road to fix up. I just drive, I never seem to see things along the side of the road on at the curb.

Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment.

Okay - how did you see the beauty in that chair and I missed it? It turned out beautifully, but when and how did you learn to be able to do this? And your hubby knew how to make wood seats? I tell you I get more and more inpressed as I read blogs and I am ALWAYS learning new things.

donna said...

Stella, what beautiful work you and your husband do. Wouldn't the people who put it on the curb be impressed with how handsome the chair looks now?

Mimi said...

Wow, those chairs are going to be beautiful when they are all completed!
