Chair Back Shelf
This is Project #2 from the same chair. You may remember my Fairy Godmother visits that resulted in some wonderful goodies. For this project I used pieces from one of the chairs and the old drying rack that I ended up taking apart.
Creating this was a lot of fun, but before we get started, let me welcome you back to the 'Do It Over' Designers blog hop. We are a group of bloggers who love to recycle/upcycle/DIY. I'm happy to host this blog hop and I hope you'll visit everyone to see what they have to share with you. Their links will be listed at the end of this post.
Here is the chair:
It was nothing special and nothing I wanted to use in my house, so I cut the back off.
A piece of wood was attached to be a shelf.
I cut 2 pieces from the old drying rack and screwed them to the back so it would have stability against the wall.
The arrows point-out the two pieces:
You can see I stained the shelf and the bottom piece with walnut stain. When it dried, they were taped-off and the rest was give two coats of Peacock chalk paint.
After the second coat, I distressed some of the edges.
With two coats of polycrylic applied and dried, it was time to hang it on the wall.
Since I made it for my craft room, I made the towel to fit the theme.
The colored pencils were a gift from a student. I've never used them because they are made from tree branches and are just too pretty to use!
In case you were wondering what happened to the the rest of the chair, that project can be found HERE. It's a table!
One chair=Two new pieces!
Now it's time for more ideas.
