Have you seen an ugly kitchen chair in your life? I thought I had seen them all……until my friend gave me this set. It was given to her by a sweet neighbor. The rest of the set, the table, the hutch, the cabinet, are all quite lovely and will look amazing with some new paint. The chairs however….the spindles remind me of skeleton bones. The worst part, the chairs are totally solid, and were probably expensive to boot. I know they are not THAT ugly, but well, they are bugging my friend and I enough that we are out of ideas.
I have turned to the following design, furniture and DIY experts to help me sort it all out.
Kelly of Eclectically Vintage, Shannon of Fox Hollow Cottage, Cassie of Primitive and Proper and Karah from the Space Between.
So here we are, I only see skeleton bones with all that nobbiness, but maybe you see something amazing. I am so excited to see what you come up with!
I will warm you up slowly, this is the bottom, not too bad….yet.
This is the side of the chair, are you thinking of your spine right now?
This is a close up of the chair. Please notice the outside of the chair, knuckles I tell you. They look like knuckles!
And here is the entire chair…….Knuckles, spinal column, and a two ended gavel in between to hold them together. This is what I see.
This is the arm chair, knuckles, spinal column, two ended gavel and shoulder blades where your arms are resting!!!
Help me!!! S’IL VOUS PLAIT ! ! !
The panel will be voting on the best idea of what to do with these chairs. The winning comment will receive a custom made sign from moi, like this:
You can have me put any words, names, etc. on it, any color available from CeCe Caldwell’s color spectrum, and can even decide how you want the lettering to look.
I am turning to you, dear readers to give me your best ideas of what you would do to make these chairs look beautiful. You can also think outside the box (or chair pad) and share how you think they could be repurposed into something else. There are 4 dining chairs and two arm chairs.
May the best surgeon (I mean creative blogger) win!
The comment content will be open until this Sunday, the 16h at midnight. The voting will be Monday, and I will announce the winner with the best idea Tuesday at Trashy Tuesday.
