They Weeble and They Wobble

What to do with wobbly chairs?  I have been working with chairs for a dozen years now.  Some chairs are just going to be wobbly no matter what you do.  Many are not worth the time and effort it takes to stabilize them, but that doesn't mean they don't have a purpose.  I screwed an ice cream maker can (painted with a little white) to the seat of this wobbly beauty.

 I painted the chair turquoise and then sanded and stained it.

Some white flowers were the perfect accent against the turquoise piece.

Remember, something past its prime may still have life when you repurpose it.

  3. My mother-in-law was going to toss an old ladder back chair that had many coats of paint on it. I snatched it up and had it dipped at a place called "Strip-Ease" in Tallahasse. This was many years ago. I discover elaborate carvings after all those "antique kits" were removed. I simply stained the chair and we have moved it with us for about 30 years. It is currently serving as a night table in the guest room, with a little milk glass lamp I found at a good will store. I can use the back to place towels or an extra blanket for my guests to use. I love the chair, even though it will never be sturdy enough to sit in!
