This week for my One Room Challenge I’m showing how I turned these chairs into stools to use outside.
For a few months I had been looking for secondhand chairs that had rush seats. I had looked into making my own stools and learning to weave the rush myself but this route was much simpler.
I bought these 3 ladder back chairs which had seats in pretty good condition. I sawed off the back with my hand saw to make them look like stools instead.
I decided to paint them using a greige paint I had leftover from painting our Kitchen Island.
These are now being used as seats for our kids at our outdoor table for the summer, and in the winter they will move inside to our foyer.
We have been having most of our meals outside and having a comfortable place to sit makes a big difference.
