Antique Chair Back Shelf

You know when a project works and when it 
doesn't by how long it sits in the shop...

I really thought this chair was cute,
I really thought the new seat was working...

But it sat in my shop for far too long. Then it sat in 
my basement which is an even bigger problem...

So I repurposed the repurposed antique chair.

The driftwood towel bar... see it here.

I basically cut off the back of the chair leaving the 
metal "L" brackets that were on the chair. 

I made a shelf then added trim to the shelf...

I repainted the shelf and the chair back white to unify the piece...

I kept one of the chair bars on the bottom and it 
just happens to be perfect to hold towels!

I am loving the transformation!

If I can part with it, it will be 
going back in the Homeroad Shop 
and maybe it will sell faster now!
