I wanted to swap out my old glass round dining table and metal chairs for wood. I wanted to do it on a budget – it’s more fun that way, so I started looking for chairs and a table I could refinish to my liking. I went to my local Hospice Thrift store and found 4 ugly green chairs that were $19.99 on sell for 50% off!!! I knew I didn’t want to spend more than $10 for each chair – SCORE!!! Here is my makeover. BTW, still searching for the table, I may just have to make my own. I don’t want to spend over $100. on the table.
I was bored yesterday so I was digging around the house to see what I could work on. I found some old tacky plastic Christmas platters up in a cabinet and thought “hhhmmm, there’s a start!”
We have a small den that used to have a huge coffee table in front of the couch, you had to walk around it and it didn’t leave much room for our dog to hang out. I love working with old pallets so I figured I could make the top with one and then add some legs, padding and fabric – wa la….. an ottoman!! My corners look a little rough and it’s not perfect – but it’s perfect for us!!
