Repurposed Projects Using Folding Chairs

Wooden folding chairs are easy to find and fun to repurpose. Today I'm going to show you how I turned a few old folding chairs I found on the side of the road a few years ago into fabulous new projects.

On my way to work one day I found big a stack of folding chairs on the side of the road. 

Each one was stenciled with a last name on the back.  

I kid you not... people throw away the strangest things! 

Today I have 3 fun projects showing how I repurposed those chairs. 

Each project was sold in the little shop space I had at one time. 

The first project involved giving the chairs a beachy look. 

Honestly, I could have painted them all this gorgeous color and stopped right there.

The second project I made with the chairs was slightly unusual but a fun and unique project none the less.

The last makeover was one that means a lot to me.

This chair was the perfect chair for our bride-to-be and I ended up making a new friend too!

Do you have any ideas for folding chairs? I'd love to hear about them in the comments below. 

Thanks for visiting and I hope the next time you run across an old wooden folding chair you will do more than just use it to sit on. 

Have fun repurposing!
