Last summer I shared a space we created out of doors on our patio HERE. In this post I shared, for the first time, a gorgeous and perfectly chippy chair.
See - perfection!
I moved the chair to my front porch in October to decorate for my son's birthday party and for the fall.
Shortly after, we came home from work and found the chair literally broken into pieces. It had been an extremely windy day and all we can figure is the wind caught the storm door and it slammed into the chair, breaking it. That was a sad, sad day. Sigh....I really loved that chair.
We stuck it in the garage with the idea that we would eventually figure out ways to repurpose the pieces. If you saw my post about my Frankenstein cabinet, then you know Nate and I enjoy building things using what we have.
A few weeks ago Nate was out cleaning up his garage and was in the mood to build. After awhile he came in and got me to show me what he created. I was blown away!!! It was pure genius on his part on what he put together!!
He took one of these windows that was broken that my stepdad gave us
Some pallet boards, furring strips and the legs of that gloriously chippy chair and created this:
A clever, one-of-a-kind table!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't tell you how much I love it!!
From the beautiful chippy legs
To the rusty window latch
And the rustic look of the table top
I'm so glad there's a second life for that chippy chair after all!!
