Another Chair! Restored, Rescued, Rehabilitated, Recycled, Reclaimed, Rustic, Recovery

Pin It
 I've got a cute TEAL chair sitting on my front porch now!
It's rustic and reclaimed!

Here's the story.
I was driving home from somewhere with my little 8 year old daughter.
We were on a semi busy street.
I saw a couch and a chair on the curb...FREE right?
I jumped out, quickly grabbed the chair and threw it in the hatch...
I figured I'd get out of traffic before I looked too close at it.

When I got it home...I was mortified.
The chair was totally warped, dilapidated and disgusting!
I was so embarrassed.

I quickly chucked it in the Yard Sale pile of the garage and forgot about it.
A week or so later, my husband found it.
I explained how crappy it was and was going to junk it.

He lovingly went to work.
Quickly taking off the grease stained, worn and sick-o seat cushion.
When I saw him out there with gorilla glue and hand clamps, I got my camera.

He fixed the back board and preserved the distressing.


 He used some wood that he had the little boys
 pound nails into and fashioned a new seat.
The nails were short...and underneath...my little secret.
Cut to a perfect fit!
    Then he spray painted them my favorite color of TEAL!
The wood was greasy and distressed, so the paint bubbled in places...
Eventually we'll sand down some edges and get that rustic back a little.
But for now, I am so happy with my cute chair on my porch!




Linking up to THESE parties this week!

I love the chair! Teal is quickly becoming one of my favorite colors.

I am a new reader of yours and I am LOVING all your furniture redos! I'm soaking up all your information because I have a kitchen table I want to repaint and an old 60s style chair to recover. Thanks for all the great inspiration!

I'm over at thebusybroad.blogspot if you ever want to stop by :)

Your husband did a great job to revive this chair. Lucky you that he wanted to take on this project because it looks completely different and awesome against your red brick!
