Repurpose old chair: Old Chair Turned Shelf


Do you have an old chair around the house that feels like it will collapse underneath you every time you sit down?

We were never brave enough to bring this chair to the dinner table for fear we’d end up on the ground, but i couldn’t just get rid of the thing.

So let’s do a little ‘repurpose old chair’ operation.


Use one SAW (hand or electric) to cut off the legs.

PAINT chair with a solid color (in my case white).

STENCIL or (my case-freehand) a simple shape onto the chair.

Use a rough grit piece of SANDPAPER and sand everything down very well so that it looks nice and weathered.

I DRILLED two holes in the chair to hang up, but really you could just hang it on a few nails.
