I can't believe I actually put this old chair out to the curb. I did just that last week then took the terrier for her walk.
I got this years ago in NJ at an estate sale. I removed the old cane seat and started to strip it. Then I completely lost interest in restoring it so it has been sitting neglected in the attic.
But while I was walking the neighborhood it struck me that I should find some way to recycle that chair and keep it out of the land fill. Then the sea shells came to mind. Definitely an aha moment.
First thing I coated the chair with my new best friend, Spray Kilz Primer. Can't tell you how much I love this stuff.
Next I painted the chair a pretty seaside blue using exterior paint.
Next I applied a lot of pretty shells using my fav glue, E6000.
Using landscape fabric I made a seat, filled it with potting mix and flowers.
Sea shells make everything better.
So next time, don't kick it to the curb, whatever it is.
Glue some shells to it :->
