Recycled chair

by Carol
(Eustis, FL)

My neighbor had thrown this chair out and it was well worn.

I brought it home and sanded it and also had to put a new seat on it as it was missing a seat. I painted it with acrylic paint and now it has a new life.

So cool!

What an artist you are, Carol! I love geometric designs - and I have such a fondness for nine patch quilts too, which is what this reminds me of.

The use of acrylic paints is perfect for this project. They last for years - if it's out in the garden, give it a couple of coats of water based acrylic Varathane to protect it.

Good work, and thanks for sharing!

I really like the color combinations, and I especially love all the tiny details you put onto this chair. I'd be putting it "front & center" where I could see it every day, if I'd put that much work into it. Thanks for sharing. PS. I'll bet your neighbor wants it back now.
