Another old chair is transformed into a usable shelf for the bathroom.

This project began with a broken antique ladder back chair found on the top of a snow bank on the side of the road. 

Yes, I pulled over and grabbed the chair in one swift move and it was mine!

It had potential but the rush seat was a mess and the chair had a broken leg... no worries, I can give it a new life.

When I got the chair home I cut the ladder back top of the chair off and added a 1" x 6" piece of wood to the bottom with wood glue and nails through the bottom.

I painted the entire piece with Fusion Mineral Paint in Bedford. I love this paint it goes on smoothly and there is no top coat required!  Fusion Mineral Paint can be purchased at Revival Oporium at Backstreet Antiques.

I added hooks to the ladder back to hang towels, baskets, or whatever you need.

This is a beautiful farmhouse shelf that can be finished in a few hours.
